The Royal Ascot Ladies’ Day 2024:
Royal Ascot evolved from the first four-day race meeting held at Ascot in 1768, although the meeting as it is known today only really started to take shape with the introduction of The Gold Cup in 1807, Until 1939, Royal Ascot was the only race meeting held at the racecourse. The Gold Cup remains the feature race of the third day of Royal Ascot, traditionally the busiest day of the week, when high fashion and exquisite millinery take centre stage alongside flat racing’s most elite stayers. During the racecourse’s redevelopment in 2005, the Royal Meeting was held at York Racecourse.
Each of the five days of Royal Ascot begins with the Royal Procession at 2pm, when the Queen and other members of the royal family arrive down the straight mile in the Royal Landaus, accompanied by the playing of the National Anthem and the raising of the Royal Standard. This tradition was started in 1825 by King George IV.
Royal Ascot is Britain’s most valuable race meeting, attracting many of the world’s finest racehorses to compete for millions of pounds in prize money (just over £7.3million in 2019). Approximately 500 horses race across the five days. Eighteen Group races, eight of them Group 1, are staged each year and are broadcast to audiences in almost 200 territories around the world.

Immerse yourself in the full splendour of Royal Ascot with a trip to the Queen Anne Enclosure. As the only public enclosure that grants access to the coveted Parade Ring, Bandstand and Grandstand, the Queen Anne Enclosure provides an unparalleled view of the world-class racing on offer. An outing here is never complete without the joyful singing around the Bandstand, which takes place each day after the racing.
Sip a glass of champagne or take your pick of the many eateries on offer, from the delectable steak and lobster at 1768 Grill & Tea Room to the more casual grab-and-go pizza, bao and toastie stalls.
A firm favourite of the late Queen Elizabeth, who would arrive at the track with other members of the Royal Family in a horse-drawn landau. Our guests will have prime place in the Queen Anne Enclosure.
Please note, Ascot’s dress code states that gentlemen should wear a full-length suit and tie at all times, while ladies are required to wear a hat or fascinator. Please refer to Royal Ascot’s website for further dress code details.
The Northern Belle
Pristine white linen and sparkling glassware adorn your table in one of our individually decorated 1930s Pullman-style carriages, which have been lovingly restored by some of the country’s top craftspeople, including marquetry experts, muralists and mosaic artists. Within minutes, one of our liveried Stewards will carefully pour you a sparkling Mimosa cocktail as you study celebrated Head Chef Matthew Green’s sumptuous menu.
Ahead lies a journey back to the Golden Days of rail travel, a time when nothing was too good for the pampered passengers. As the date of your journey draws near our Executive Head Chef and his team will be hard at work in the kitchen carriage preparing a sumptuous three-course brunch and six-course dinner, accompanied by our Sommelier’s choice of wine. Each course boasts the finest seasonal ingredients from the British Isles, classic and innovative dishes are crafted in our recently refurbished kitchen carriage.
En route to Ascot a delicious three-course brunch is served as the glorious British countryside passes by. On arrival, follow the platform guides as they accompany you for a short walk to Queen Anne Grandstand to enjoy “the jewel of the racing world calendar”.
After an incredible day we rejoin the Northern Belle for a Champagne reception, before tucking into a sumptuous six-course dinner during the leisurely journey home.
