Being one of the closest hotels to Windsor Racecourse where in the summer they put on great race nights every Monday evening means you can enjoy the races and then come back and relax with a night cap in the bar, reliving every winning moment. Ascot Racecourse.
Windsor Castle is one of three official residences of The Queen and has been home to the Sovereign for over 900 years. The Castle is the largest inhabited castle in the world and the oldest in continuous occupation. The imposing towers and battlements of the Castle loom large from every approach to the town, creating one of the world’s most spectacular skylines. No other royal residence has played such an important role in the nation’s history.
The Castle opens at 9.45am daily throughout the year. From March to October admission continues until 4.00pm and the Castle closes at 5.15pm. From November to February, the castle still opens at 9.45am, admissions cease at 3.00pm and the Castle closes at 4.15pm. During the winter months the Semi-State Rooms are included in the visitor route. Standard admission charges apply.
The Royal Adelaide is just 15 minutes from Ascot racecourse and there are few sporting venues that can match its rich heritage and history. For almost 250 years, Royal Ascot has established itself as a national institution and the centrepiece of the British social calendar as well as being the ultimate stage for the best racehorses in the world.
Tradition, pageantry, fashion and style all meet in a glorious setting at one of the most beautiful racecourses in the country. The quality of the horse racing at Royal Ascot is simply outstanding, with £4.5 million in prize money on offer and a total of eighteen ‘Group’ races over the five days.
