Ascot Racecourse is one of the Britain’s most famous racecourses, hosting nine of Britain’s thirty-two annual Group 1 horse races. Queen Anne founded the Racecourse in 1711 and the first race, ‘Her Majesty's Plate’, was held there on 11 August 1711. This close relationship with the Royal Family has continued and is epitomized by Royal Ascot, a week of races in June, attended by the Queen. Royal Ascot has become Britain's most popular race meeting, welcoming around 300,000 visitors over five days.

Ascot stages twenty-six racing days over the course of the year, with eighteen flat meetings taking place between May and October, and a number of important jump racing events throughout the winter. More recently the racecourse has introduced events to appeal to a wider audience such as the ‘Festival of Food and Wine Racing Weekend’, the ‘Summer Mile Saturday’ and the ‘Fireworks Spectacular Family Raceday’.
