Royal Windsor Racecourse
Experience the unique blend of royal heritage & intimate atmosphere that is Royal Windsor Racecourse.
Over the years we've played host to may exciting and successful events notably our famous summertime Monday night racing!
Although the local area has links to horse racing dating back to the era of Henry VIII, the first race meeting at Royal Windsor was not held until 1866.
Of course, Royal patronage is no surprise, horse racing is after all, 'the sport of Kings' (and Queens) and we are privileged to have such a high profile and enthusiastic next door neighbour!
With the only flat figure of eight racecourse in the UK, the track is slightly more than a mile and a half in length and has a final straight of five exciting furlongs.
There are three different areas from which you can view the racing: The Club Enclosure, the Grandstand Enclosure & the Silver Ring Enclosure.
The Club Enclosure has the prime position next to the winning post and has a dedicated big screen for all the racing action.
All other public areas may be accessed, including all restaurants and bars.
The Grandstand Enclosure has a great view of the track and winning post, superbly complemented by a big screen directly opposite. There is a choice of seating and eating areas.
The Silver Ring Enclosure is the only area on the course where you may bring your own picnic; the best positions are soon taken so come early to make sure you get the best view of all the racing action.
All our enclosures have TOTE betting facilities and bookmakers and all allow access to the centre of the course where you can be right at the heart of the action.
