Royal Ascot is synonymous with sartorial elegance. This is upheld by their strict dress code, which invites guests to contribute to an occasion heralded as a major fashion event in its own right.
There are three enclosures: the Royal, the Windsor and the Queen Anne. Each have their own dress code with the Royal Enclosure being the most formal.

Gentlemen are kindly reminded that it is a requirement to wear either black or grey
morning dress which must include:
• A waistcoat and tie (no cravats)
• A black or grey top hat
• Black shoes
A gentleman may remove his top hat within a restaurant, a private box, a private club or that
facility’s terrace, balcony or garden. Hats may also be removed within any enclosed external
seating area within the Royal Enclosure Garden.
The customisation of top hats (with, for example, coloured ribbons or bands) is not permitted in the Royal Enclosure.
Boys (aged 10-17, Admitted on Friday and Saturday only) should either dress in accordance with the gentlemen’s dress code; or alternatively may wear a dark-coloured lounge suit with a shirt and tie.
Queen Anne Enclosure
Gentlemen are required to wear a suit with shirt and tie but are welcome to follow the Royal Enclosure dress code.
Boys should wear a suit or jacket with a shirt and a tie. Younger boys (aged 12 or under) should be dressed smartly but are not required to wear a jacket or tie.
Ascot Racecourse recognises that there may be instances where a degree of discretion is required in determining compliance with their dress code within the Queen Anne Enclosure. In such instances, reasonable judgement will be exercised.
