Royal Enclosure Boxes Hospitality Critic Review


The superb grandstand at Ascot has more private boxes than other comparable events. These exclusive facilities are generally let on an annual basis to private companies, however, a select number can be reserved for Royal Ascot, which are generally sold as fully-inclusive packages. Depending on their location in the grandstand, the boxes have access either to the Royal Enclosure or the Queen Anne Enclosure. The boxes closest to the Winning Post are those within the designated Royal Enclosure. Boxes are located on Floors 2, 3, 5 & 6 of the grandstand and range in capacities from as few as 10 guests to as many as 108 guests.

Box Locations (Royal Enclosure & Queen Anne Enclosure)

Level 6:         Boxes for 10 guests (14-buffet).

Levels 2 & 5:  Boxes for 12 guests (18-buffet). The majority of boxes are this size.

Double & Triple 10 or 12-seater boxes are available.

Levels 3 & 5:  Boxes for 48 guests (72-buffet).

Level 2:          The Long Box for 72 guests (108-buffet).


Many boxes have been decorated to a very high standard by annual box holders, whereas others are more basic. Each box has a private bar together with a dining area and a large TV monitor. Each box has a private balcony with fabulous views of the racecourse and the Berkshire countryside. A few fixed folding chairs are included for use on the balcony in most boxes. Betting facilities are within easy access to all private boxes.

Private Tables

There is a private dining table in each box unless you choose to have a more relaxed and casual buffet dining.

Admission Tickets

Royal Enclosure boxes come with a prestigious Royal Enclosure guest badge, for which you will need to observe the iconic dress-code requirements, synonymous with sartorial elegance.


There are two ways to hire a Private Box at Royal Ascot; an all-inclusive package basis with a set menu option or alternatively simply hire the Private Box and select from the bespoke catering menu and drinks options to have a more tailored experience. Most boxes are only available as an inclusive package.
