Royal Ascot

Your Journey

Embark on a journey that combines elite flat racing and timeless rail travel in a spectacular celebration of British heritage.

Your experience begins at London Victoria Station. Board the vintage train and settle into your plush armchair. As your private steward serves you a sparkling Bellini cocktail, take time to admire the art deco touches of your carriage, from intricate marquetry and brass luggage racks to beautiful textiles. Enjoy a delicious brunch as the train makes its way to Berkshire and absorb the passing views of the countryside through your picture window.

On arrival at Ascot Station, alight for a 10-minute walk to the racecourse. Your entrance ticket gives you access to the Queen Anne Enclosure, with splendid views across the course and the Parade Ring. It also entitles you to a buffet lunch in the Garden Club. Spend an exhilarating afternoon enjoying the world-class racing, cheering on your favourite horses and jockeys from around the world and perhaps placing a few bets – all the while soaking up the eye-catching millinery and fashions of your fellow racegoers.

As you rejoin the train and sink back into your chair, sip a glass of champagne and reflect on the day’s adventures. A light supper, accompanied by our sommelier’s choice of wines, rounds off a thrilling day as you journey back to London Victoria.
