Join us for an evening at Royal Windsor Racecourse. Guests will meet at the 5* Monkey Island Resort in Bray before boarding our private launch to Windsor.
At the Racecourse you will enjoy full hospitality in the private suite overlooking the course. Set right on the bend of this prestigious racecourse, these suites offer spectacular views not only over the track, but over the stunning 165 acres of the venue.
Monkey Island is a luxury 5* boutique resort set in the middle of the River Thames in the village of Bray.
The island (or eyot as Thames islands are known) is filled with chestnut, lime and walnut trees, with lawns and flowerbeds. The village of Bray is well known for its restaurants: Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck, Hind’s Head and Crown, and the Roux family’s Waterside Inn.
The Thames here is remarkably peaceful and kingfishers can often be spotted. A feeling of seclusion immediately descends once on to the pastoral, private island with its gentle river views.
Add a night’s accommodation to your package. The perfect ending to your day.
Guests will meet at Monkey Island in Bray where there is plenty of parking for cars. From there you will board our private launch, The Fringilla for the cruise along the Thames to Windsor Racecourse.
The trip from Monkey Island is lovely, as you pass Bray Marina, Queens Eyot, Oakley Court, Windsor Marina, Dorney Lake, to go through Boveney Lock. All the way we will be serving drinks and canapes to get you in the mood for the races.
Once we get to the racecourse it is only a short walk to your hospitality suite for the evening.
Hospitality at the Racecourse
Once at the racecourse we will take our places in the Hospitality Suite where we will serve drinks on arrival and the three-course buffet menu throughout the evening.
The Tote is just down the hall and you can take a short walk down to the Parade Ring to see the runners and riders.
With seven races on the cards there will be plenty of opportunity to back a winner or two.
