Lying just six miles from Windsor Castle, Ascot was originally called East Cote, meaning 'Eastern Cottage'.
Racing began at Royal Ascot in 1711, after Queen Ann ordered the races to be transferred here from Datchet Meads. When George II came to the throne in 1760, Ascot became the most important racecourse in England after Epsom. Today Royal Ascot is arguably the most famous racecourse in the UK.
The town developed from this central attraction, with the railway opening in 1845 to serve the racecourse and the increasingly commercial town.
