Afternoon Tea and Picnics galore at Royal Ascot 2018

Dining is one of the best bits about Royal Ascot, with Afternoon Tea or a Picnic among the traditional options...

With over 240,000 hand-crafted afternoon tea cakes, 12,000 buttermilk scones and 60,000 finger sandwiches to be served, this year’s Afternoon Tea is the very fabric of the Royal Ascot experience and partaking in this very British tradition will be the highlight of your day.

Starting with a selection of homemade sandwiches, move onto freshly baked scones with jam and cream. Leave room for the all-important top tier of delectable cakes which range from a rocky road flapjack and indulgent black forest roulade to a carrot cake and simply Victoria sponge cake (£35 per person). To make your experience truly unforgettable, why not treat yourself to a glass of Brit or Rose Champagne Bollinger NV with your treats (£55 per person)?

A Royal Ascot picnic is a great tradition and many choose to enjoy one in their car park. However, you can also make the most of one that is organised for you. Pre-bookable across the Royal Enclosure and Queen Anne Enclosure, it is the perfect vantage point from which to appreciate unique style and magnificent hats that Royal Ascot is internationally acclaimed for. A Royal Ascot Afternoon Tea picnic is also available from £90 for two in the Queen Anne, Windsor and Village Enclosures.
