The Royal Enclosure

The origins of the Royal Enclosure can be traced back to 1807 when an area was reserved exclusively for family, guests, and the Household of King George III. Today, it remains the most exclusive part of the racecourse, accessible by invitation only.

Dress Code: For the Royal Enclosure, ladies should wear a dress or skirt that falls just above the knee or longer, with shoulder straps at least 1 inch (2.5cm) wide. Trouser suits or jumpsuits of matching material and colour are also acceptable, as long as they fall below the knee. Lace and chiffon fabrics are allowed, and a jacket or pashmina can be worn as long as the outfit beneath meets the dress code. Hats are mandatory, but a headpiece or hatinator with a minimum base diameter of 4 inches (10cm) is also acceptable.
