Ascot Heath

Ascot Heath

A 1.8 mile circular stroll around the heath that sits inside Ascot Racecourse. Home to the famous Royal Ascot meeting every June, Ascot Racecourse sits in the heart of the town and houses an impressive grandstand that was rebuilt in 2007. The heath sits within the racecourse and is open for public access on non race days (check the web site at http://www.ascot.co.uk) from 6.30am to 7.30pm. The wide tarmac path gives an obvious route to follow and makes for easy walking. To extend the walk simply repeat the loop, or use the pedestrian underpass to visit Ascot High Street.

The heath is open grassland with lots of hedges and ditches which are home to rabbits and plenty of birds. It contains a small cricket club along with a small but deep reservoir which is fenced off but keep an eye on small dogs/children to ensure they don't slip through any gaps in the fencing. You may come across the odd vehicle (grounds maintenance or cricket club members) driving around the tarmac circular route. Dog bins with a supply of bags are provided at various points around the route.

Free parking is available off Winkfield Road (the A330). Turn off Winkfield Road following signs to the Royal Ascot Golf Club. Turn right again into the slope to Holloway Underpass and park on the left along the kerb.Approximate post code SL5 7LJ.
