An Afternoon at the races
Join us for an afternoon at Royal Windsor Racecourse. Guests will meet at the 4* Oakley Court Hotel just upriver from the racecourse, where you will board your launch to take you to the races.
Simon Double, horseracing manager will be on hand throughout to take you through the race card and offer some tips.
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.
Oakley Court is a glorious Victorian mansion house set in 35 acres of English countryside on the banks of the River Thames between Windsor and Bray.
Described as offering the warmth of a family home with historic gothic roots it is the perfect base for your visit to Windsor.
You will stay in a Boathouse Riverview room, which has a blend of modern and antique touches.
Additional nights and room upgrades are available upon request.
The Fringilla & Sula
Guests will meet at Monkey Island in Bray where there is plenty of parking for cars. From there you will board our private launches, the Fringilla and Sula for the cruise along the Thames to Windsor Racecourse. There will be 12 guest on each launch.
The trip is lovely, as you pass leave Oakley Court and pass Windsor Marina, Dorney Lake, to go through Boveney Lock. All the way we will be serving drinks 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 afternoon.
