Royal Ascot is Britain's most valuable race meeting, attracting many of the world's finest racehorses to compete for more than £6.58M in prize money.
Black Caviar, Frankel and Yeats are all winners turned household names...and we had free bets on all of them!
The course is owned by Ascot Racecourse Ltd and has close links with the British Royal Family due to it being only six miles from Windsor Castle.
Ascot hosts numerous race events over the course of the year but the Royal Meeting - held each June - remains the major draw. The Royal Ascot meeting dates back to 1711 when it was founded by Queen Anne. Every year Royal Ascot is attended by Queen Elizabeth II and other members of the British Royal Family.
Due to the huge level of interest from the general public bookies battle it out every year to offer the biggest free bets for Royal Ascot.
There are four enclosures attended by guests on Royal Ascot week.
The Royal Enclosure is widely regarded as the historic heart of Royal Ascot and is one of the most unique venues in British sport. It is definitely the best way to enjoy a VIP experience at Ascot...and get a feel of the indulgent atmosphere enjoyed by the Royals!
However, I'm afraid getting inside the Royal Enclosure is tricky for us mere mortals.
It was first opened in 1807 exclusively for the family and guests of King George III, and to this day membership continues to be by invitation-only. New applicants must apply to the Royal Enclosure Office and gain membership from someone who has attended the enclosure for at least four years. Non-members can be invited to the Royal Enclosure by members courtesy of a day guest badge.
There is also a strict dress code within the Royal Enclosure. Guests are urged to "contribute to an occasion heralded as a major fashion event in its own right".
Men must be dressed in either a black or grey morning suit, which must include a waistcoat and tie, a black or grey top hat and plain black shoes.
There are even more guidelines for the ladies. Dresses and skirts should fall below the knee or longer. Dresses and tops should have straps of one inch or greater. Jackets and pashminas may be worn but garments underneath must still comply with the dress code. Trouser suits are permitted but they must be full length and of matching material and colour. Full length jumpsuits are also permitted. Hats must be worn. A headpiece which has a solid base of 10cm or more in diameter will be accepted as an alternative. Strapless, off the shoulder, halter neck and spaghetti straps are not permitted. Midriffs much be covered.
You might need to take advantage of a few more free bets for Royal Ascot before you can afford the Royal Enclosure! :)
On the beautifully manicured lawns and terraces of the Queen Anne Enclosure you are right in the heart of the action. You can enjoy perfect views of the racing as well as numerous food, drink and betting facilities.
The Grandstand offers you seating, restaurants, bars and more opportunities to get your Royal Ascot bets placed.
From past experience my 4G signal is strongest in this part of the racecourse...giving me the option to claim some free bets for Royal Ascot and compare odds online if the on-course bookies are being a bit tight with their odds.
The dress code for the Queen Anne Enclosure is slightly more relaxed than the Royal Enclosure...but it is still pretty strict.
Gentlemen are required to wear a matching suit with a shirt and tie.
Ladies are encouraged to dress as if they are attending a formal function. A hat, headpiece or fascinator should be worn at all times. Strapless dresses and tops are not permitted. Trousers and jumpsuits are permitted if full length. Midriffs must be covered. Shorts are not permitted.
Ascot Racecourse Ltd say that with the Village Enclosure they have created a "Contemporary British Summertime".
Boutique restaurants, pop-up and al-fresco dining, champagne and cocktail bars mixed with music throughout the entire day - and not to mention the obligatory betting outlets - create an atmosphere like no other.
The Village Enclosure is new for 2017 and looks like it might quickly become my personal favourite. Not as stuffy and formal as the Royal Enclosure and Queen Anne Enclosure...but more sophisticated than the usually jam packed Windsor Enclosure.
The Village Enclosure has exactly the same dress code as the Queen Anne Enclosure.
The Windsor Enclosure is the cheapest but - if you get there early enough - offers some of the very best views.
Enjoy close-up views of the Royal Procession as it journeys past the Windsor Enclosure and watch horses gallop past on their way down the home straight when racing begins.
The atmosphere in the Windsor Enclosure is always lively with guests food stalls, picnics, bars and betting facilities.
The Windsor Enclosure had no specific dress code. However, racegoers are encouraged to wear smart clothes and replica sports shirts are not permitted.
