Three lucky couples will be treated like kings and queens at the Royal Ascot Racecourse outside of London. The annual Royal Meeting is the zenith of Britain’s summer social calendar, as well as the ultimate stage for the world’s finest thoroughbreds. Royal Ascot has been a national institution for over three centuries, and the winning bidder’s party will enjoy it in gilded style.

First, however, you’ll spend two enchanted nights in the center of London, luxuriating in a Suite at the Mandarin Oriental in Knightsbridge. This Five-star hotel, housed in a historic Edwardian-style building, is among the city’s finest. Originally known as the Hyde Park Hotel, it underwent a complete restoration before reopening in 2000.

One of the highlights of your London visit will be a private tour of the Household Cavalry Barracks, home of the mounted regiment that serves as the Queen’s official bodyguard. The location on the southern edge of Hyde Park, close to Buckingham Palace, enables the Horse Guards to respond quickly to any royal emergency.

You’ll also have a private experience at Floris of London, the oldest English retailer of fragrances and toiletries which was founded in 1730 and is currently run by the 8th and 9th generations of the family. J. Floris Ltd. received its first Royal Warrant in 1820 and holds warrants today to both the Queen and the Prince of Wales. While in the capital, you’ll enjoy a show in London’s West End.

Interested in purchasing a horse to run at Ascot Racecourse? You’ll get your chance at Goff’s London Sale, a boutique thoroughbred auction held on the eve of Royal Ascot at Kensington Palace Gardens. If you can’t transport your horse back to America, settle for a private shopping excursion to Harrod’s, the elite department store located on Brompton Road in Knightsbridge. Occupying five acres and over a million square feet, Harrod’s contains every possible necessity for living the good life.

The exclusive social life of the capital is centered around it’s many private clubs, and you’ll have access to several of them. You’ll have lunch at 5 Hertford Street Private Member’s Club, described as London’s most secretive club—don’t be surprised if you bump into Mick Jagger, Leonardo di Caprio or Prince William on the premises. In addition, you’ll dine at Annabel’s in Mayfair in the company of Lanfranco “Frankie” Dettori, winner of over 500 Group races and frequently referred to as England’s best jockey.

The culinary high point of your London visit will be Dinner by Heston Blumenthal in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Blumenthal is one of the country’s most celebrated experimental chefs and has been decorated with the Order of the British Empire. At Dinner, the recipient of Two Michelin Stars, Blumenthal has traveled back in time to recreate England’s classic recipes, some of which date to the 13th century. Your meal at Dinner will consist of what Blumenthal calls “a multi-sensory experience.”

Move on to the Hampshire countryside, where you’ll spend four nights in a Signature Suite at Heckfield Place. Originally built between 1763-1766, this pastoral manor house is set in a country estate of 438 acres. The property has its own orchard, dairy, certified organic farm and flocks of free-range Hyline chickens, all of which supply provisions for the hotel’s table. While in Hampshire, you’ll enjoy a private tour of Highclere Castle, famous as the setting for Downton Abbey, and stroll the gardens with noted landscape designer Angela Collins.

It’s time to don your finery and get ready for the Royal Meeting at Ascot Racecourse. The course was founded by Queen Anne in 1711 and still enjoys close associations with the Royal Family, with Queen Elizabeth II attending several times each year. Although the calendar at Ascot includes 26 days of racing between October and March, June’s Royal Meeting is the highlight of the British social season. The ladies and gentlemen in your party will wear the hats and tail suits that were fitted for them in London.

On June 14th, the opening day at Royal Ascot, the Queen and the Royal Family will arrive at 2 p.m. for an afternoon of world-class racing that will include the Queen Anne Stakes, King’s Stand Stakes and St. James’s Palace Stakes. You’ll spend the afternoon in a private box in the Royal Enclosure, accompanied by Stonestreet wines and including a visit by Frankie Dettori.

The following day, you’ll be transferred from Heckfield Place to Royal Ascot by private helicopter. After a pre-parade and paddock experience with the owners of the Stonestreet thoroughbred entry, you’ll spend the day in the Banke’s private box to watch the prestigious Prince of Wales’s Stakes, accompanied by Stonestreet wines. Following afternoon tea, you’ll dine with the Banke family at Farleigh Wallop, an exclusive country house owned and tended by the same family since the 15th century.

This amazing lot provides the opportunity to enjoy thoroughbred racing in a style rarely experienced by anyone outside the circle of British nobility and royalty. You’ll be steeped in history while partaking in the finest food, wine and hospitality London and the countryside has to offer.

In addition, you’ll take home a truly one-of-a-kind set of four, 9 Liter bottles—the equivalent of a full case each—of wines from Lokoya, one of the jewels in the Jackson family crown. Established in 1995, Lokoya is a collection of four distinct Cabernet Sauvignons from four of Napa Valley’s most celebrated mountain appellations: Diamond Mountain, Howell Mountain, Mount Veeder, and Spring Mountain. These limited-production wines provide the purest sense of place from some of Napa’s finest vineyard sites.

Raise your paddle high and become part of the British royal experience!
