The organisers at Royal Ascot (June 19–23) have created a chic video to advise racegoers on putting together an appropriate look. Those who go off-track with the new guidelines will not be allowed entry to the Royal Enclosure if their hems are more than one inch above the knee, so there’s a lot to consider when getting dressed for the event.

EACH Ticket Type has its own Dress Code

❏ The Royal Enclosure is the top of the range option, giving you access to all the best viewing areas and facilities on the course. Formal day wear is a requirement.

❏ The Grandstand Admission ticket at Royal Ascot provides similar access facilities to those offered throughout the year. Dress in a manner as befits a formal occasion.

❏ The Silver Ring at Royal Ascot is a separate admission area that does not provide access to the Parade Ring or the main Grandstand. Bare chests are not permitted at any time.
