The event takes place over five days and is attended by more than 300,000 people ( that’s a lot of traffic)! Each year the event is attended by HM Queen Elizabeth and other members of the Royal Family, who love horse racing. Lots of other celebrities can be seen hanging out in the Royal Enclosure. Getting into the Royal Enclosure for the races is sought after and we would advise you to book as early as possible.

GETTING THERE

London Heliport in Battersea is the only heliport in central London. Centrally located on the south bank river of the Thames opposite Chelsea Harbour, the heliport is perfectly placed to get to Ascot. The main heliport entrance is via a secure reception area to enhance privacy and discretion and you will also have secure airside access and security.

London Heliport is open Monday – Friday 07.30- 19.30, which is ideal for flying to Ascot. Many clients choose to leave around 10.30 am and return about 6.30 pm. With prior arrangements opening hours can be extended until 22.29L.

However Falcona can organise a flight from anywhere in the UK to Royal Ascot. Popular routes to Royal Ascot are from Manchester, Gloucester and East Midlands.

A helicopter flight is the quickest and most exciting way to attend Royal Ascot, soar high above the traffic. A flight from London Heliport to Ascot takes just 15 minutes, on arrival you will be met by ground staff who will take you through to the VIP terminal, where you will then be escorted to your chosen hospitality suite. Groups of people can fly in twin engine aircraft, which range from 5 – 10 seats. These aircraft are faster and can fly in adverse weather, although we always want it to be sunny for your special day.
