Royal Windsor Racecourse
Maidenhead Road Windsor Berkshire SL4 5JJ
Stretching over a large, lush island in the Thames, Windsor’s racecourse is less prim and arguably more fun than fancy-hatted Ascot. Summer Monday nights are the season’s mainstay, when a mixed crowd descends to quaff Pimm’s and flutter. Myriad bars and food stalls sustain punters, or you can picnic in the Silver Ring Enclosure. Smart casual dress code applies in the Club Enclosure only. Arrive on one of French Brothers Boat Trips for the swankiest entrance.
