The local state secondary school in the Ascot area is Charters School in nearby Sunningdale.
Facilities tend to be geared towards the racecourse, but there is a small range of shops in the High Street. Most of the expected facilities one would expect to find in a small town are here, including a supermarket, boutique shops and cafes.
The towns of Windsor, Camberley, Guildford and Reading provide a further more extensive range of amenities, in addition to theatre, cinema and recreational facilities. For the commuter, the area is perfectly positioned for easy access to the motorway network, rail services and Heathrow Airport.
Sporting and leisure facilities in the area include some prestigious golf clubs including Wentworth, Sunningdale and polo at the Royal Berkshire Polo Club and Smith's Lawn.
Health and fitness clubs include the Wentworth Club, Virgin Active Club, Berystede Hotel, Pennyhill Park and Coworth Park and there are some beautiful walks available at Virginia Water, The Savill Garden, Windsor Great Park and on Chobham Common.
Ascot has a station on a bi-section of the railway line from London Waterloo to Reading, Bagshot, Aldershot and Guildford. As a consequence of the frequent service on this line, Ascot is now a commuter centre with its residents in both directions (westwards to Reading and eastwards to London)
The centrepiece of Ascot's year is held in June. Royal Ascot is without doubt the world's most famous race meeting, steeped in history dating back to 1711. The royal family attend the meeting, arriving each day in a horse-drawn carriage. It is a major event in the British social calendar and this has placed Ascot onto the British social map.
