The local area guide to living in Ascot

Ascot, in east Berkshire, is renowned for its annual horseracing event, Royal Ascot, which was first held in 1711. Each June, the world’s most skilled horse-riders come together with socialite spectators for an event full of sport, socialising and weird and wonderful hats. Ever since 1825, it has been tradition for the event to include a royal procession.

Ascot was reportedly selected as a racing destination by Queen Anne, and its future was secured after an Act of Enclosure was passed by parliament in 1813. With its huge terraced stands and spectacular grounds, this course has become the area’s biggest tourist draw, and the racecourse recently underwent further maintenance and development.

Other attractions in the area include Windsor Castle, situated in the historic town of Windsor, which is just six miles away. There are also a number of golf courses within close proximity, and Ascot Business Park, which opened in 2008. The town itself is a blend of modern shops, nightlife and picturesque scenery, while the nearby village of Sunninghill is noted for its natural beauty.

Ascot and its surrounding villages have a total population of approximately 17,500, of which 42% are aged 45 years or older. With a further 25% of residents aged between 30 and 44 years, the town’s average age is higher than the national average.

Ascot Racecourse is one major source of jobs, with approximately 6,000 employees working on either a permanent or seasonal basis. Ascot Business Park also provides a lot of employment in the area, as the home to small and medium enterprises. Other key sectors are motor trades, retail, property and wholesale. Approximately 34% of residents are degree educated, and 28% work in management positions.

Nearby schools

Ascot has many successful independent schools at both primary and secondary level. In fact, it is home to Papplewick Boys’ School – one of Britain’s top preparatory schools. There are also high-quality private girls’ schools, including St George’s School and St Mary’s School, as well as a co-ed day and boarding school, Licensed Victuallers, for children aged four to 18 years. The latter is a non-selective school owned by the Licensed Trade Charity.

Students also have access to Sunningdale’s Charters School – a high-quality state secondary school.

Getting around

It takes just 45 minutes to reach Ascot from London when travelling by car, as the town is within easy reach of the A322, which provides links to the M3, the M4 and the M25.

There are also convenient public transport options, with frequent services running between Ascot Railway Station and Reading or London Waterloo. There are also intercity coaches operated by the national coach service, and regular bus routes throughout the town.

For international travel, passengers can take any of the previously mentioned routes to London where they’ll be able to access London Heathrow Airport.

Local shops

It might be famous for its races, but Ascot is no one-horse town.

Other attractions include the charming Novello Theatre in nearby Sunninghill, which is set up in the style of a Pollock Toy Theatre. Here, regular performances are staged featuring up-and-coming acts. Sunninghill is also home to Charters Leisure Centre, which offers a range of sports activities and classes.

There are also a series of local art galleries in Ascot itself, many of which include tributes to horse racing. Residents can also take a short train ride to Wokingham, a popular nightlife hub.
