Non-Racing Events

01 August 2018


  • Royal Wedding and FA Cup Final Screening on Saturday 19 May
  • Exclusive Park and Float Service to Windsor Town Centre

Ahead of the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at Windsor Castle on 19 May, Royal Windsor Racecourse is delighted to announce a number of offers and events for those looking to join in the celebrations.

Huge crowds are expected to gather in the town for what will be one of the highest profile events of the year, and Royal Windsor Racecourse will offer opportunities to celebrate the wedding for either those who want to travel in to town or at the comfort of the racecourse.

For members of the public who would like to travel into Windsor town centre, Royal Windsor Racecourse will operate an exclusive Park and Float scheme, which will offer a secure, reserved car park spot at the racecourse with a return boat trip into town. Alternatively, the town centre is only a twenty-five-minute walk away from the racecourse. Located close to the M4, the Racecourse will offer the easy access for those looking to park and join in the celebrations, without having to navigate into the Town Centre.

On the day itself, Royal Windsor Racecourse will offer the public the opportunity to join in the celebrations, broadcasting the Royal Wedding live on the big screens from the famous Windsor Lawn, swiftly followed by the FA Cup Final live from Wembley.

The Racecourse will host live music and childrens entertainment, alongside plenty of food and drink concessions, to make sure that everyone can join in with the celebrations and enjoy what is set to be a fabulous day.

Executive Director of Royal Windsor Racecourse, Simon Williams said, The Royal Wedding is set to be one of the biggest events of 2018 and were delighted to be playing our part at Royal Windsor Racecourse to make sure that as many people as possible can join in the celebrations. 

We hope that our Park and Float scheme will offer an excellent opportunity for visitors to access Windsor without putting excess pressure on the town centre parking facilities and those looking to enjoy the wedding with the added food, drink and entertainment, alongside the FA Cup Final, will be able to enjoy a fabulous afternoon with us at the racecourse.

During the week leading up to the big day, there will be a number of events taking place at the Racecourse to get locals and visitors to Windsor in the spirit of what will be a truly international celebration.

Royal Windsor Racecourse is famous for their popular Monday Night racing fixtures, and Monday 14 May will host Royal Ale Racenight. Alongside the racing action on the track, racegoers will be able to enjoy the Royal Ale Festival which will feature a host of local and national ales, bitters and stouts, headlined by the new Windsor Knot, from Windsor Eton Brewery.

Those looking for a fun night out ahead of the weekend will be able to enjoy a series of films under the stars at the outdoor Cinema Nights, featuring The Hangover (16 May), The Greatest Showman (17 May) and Notting Hill (18 May) where customers will also be able to enjoy the best of British food and drink.
