Royal Windsor Racecourse

About

Set in 165 acres of stunning countryside on the banks of the Thames and in the shadow of Windsor Castle, Royal Windsor Racecourse is the perfect place to be on a summer's evening. The friendly and exciting atmosphere makes for a memorable and thrilling experience each and every time. Flat racing takes place 27 times a year from April to October, including the famous Monday Night Racing.

It’s been a fantastic season so far at Royal Windsor Racecourse with a jam-packed racing programme. 2018 racing highlights include the Best of British Festival featuring Gentlemen’s Day, Windsormania Kids Music Festival and Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, as well as the famous Irish Night and Ladies Evening to finish the summer season. Royal Windsor Racecourse introduced some brand new and vibrant themes to their racing programme this year with Gin Festival, Las Vegas Racenight, Country Fair, Proms in the Park and Prosecco Festival. Not to mention the three fantastic Family Fun Days between May – August and other feature days including music live nights between April – August such as the Kaiser Chiefs.

When booking your tickets, there are three enclosures to choose and watch the racing from - Club, Grandstand and The Silver Ring (Open May - August only). All these areas have Tote betting facilities, bookmakers, bars and catering facilities.
