Travel with us to the most glamorous race day in the world!

Where  we sprinkle a lil’ ‘sauce’ on the Royal Ascot experience!

We've moved location! Please read on before you book...

After 6 years of hosting Royal Ascot ‘Ladies Day’, from 25 attendees in 2018 to 1100 in 2023, we’re proud to announce exciting news. Gorgeous Getaway have been invited, by Royal Ascot, to host our own exclusive area INSIDE the enclosure …

.. The Gorgeous Getaway VIP Picnic area [Windsor Enclosure] ...

Yes it’s a mouthful, one we’re super proud of! We’ve worked hard to achieve our ultimate goal ; the transition of our event, our attendees, our entertainment & vibe from the coach park to the heart of the enclosure. We’re thrilled to see it come to reality, and look forward to this new chapter.

Inevitably, with such an amazing opportunity, and it being our first year hosting inside, we’ve made some important changes to the event and schedule…

..This year, Gorgeous Getaway will NOT host a base in the Coach Park...

Our coach journey will still feature inclusive drinks and hosts/entertainment to get your Royal day started. Once we arrive we’ll head straight into the enclosure. You’ll enjoy the vibrant Ascot experience, or upgrade to have additional access to our VIP picnic area and seating for the day.

See a visual example of the two options below, or scroll down for our full guide to Royal Ascot

What's Included

Our GorgeousGetaway to RoyalAscot includes;

 

– Coach journey (London, Reading, Birmingham)
– Entry to Windsor Enclosure (Queen Anne upgrades available in March 2024)
– Complementary Drinks on coach and at our site in the Park.
– Pre Party, Entertainment & Afterparty in the Park – RnB, HipHop, Afrobeats, Dancehall, Reggae, House, Garage and Club Classics.

 

Drinks at our bar will include White/Red Wines, Rose, Prosecco, Juices, Water and a selection of Spirits (Rum, Whiskey, Vodka etc)

Food is available to purchase from a number of vendors onsite. Alternatively why not bring along a picnic basket along with your own choice of meals. Please don’t forget to grab breakfast .

 

London Coaches depart from the same location – V&A Museum, South Kensington. It’s the perfect backdrop for photos at the magnificent staircase entrance to the museum, and allows us to get fresh photos of your outfits before the drinking begins…
