Grandstand Admission Dress Code
Ladies with a Grandstand Admission ticket are required to dress in a manner appropriate to a smart occasion. Many wear hats although this is not compulsory. Gentlemen must wear a shirt and tie, preferably with a suit or jacket. Sports attire, jeans and shorts are strictly forbidden.

With a less formal atmosphere, the Silver Ring is does not provide access to the main grandstand or the Parade Ring. Whilst Ascot encourage racegoers to wear smart clothing, no formal dress code applies.
