Itinerary

Description

Royal Ascot is the premier sporting and social event in the summer calendar and is famed worldwide for its glamour, elegance and high-class racing action. Every year during the third week in June, tradition, pageantry, fashion and style come together in a glorious confection at one of the most beautiful racecourses in the country. As one of the most prestigious and historic race meetings in the world, Royal Ascot’s unique atmosphere is not to be missed!

So join us on Gold Cup Day (colloquially known as Ladies’ Day) to see top class thoroughbreds and world-famous jockeys compete in six races including the legendary Gold Cup itself. We also experience Royal Ascot’s unique focus on style, and although the whole week of Royal Ascot is a fashion show like no other, it is Thursday when the designer creations reach their zenith and the elegance of the ladies’ outfits is matched only by the flair of their hats!

Coach Itinerary

Thursday: Following an early morning departure from your local area, we travel to Royal Ascot. Your included ticket is for the Windsor Enclosure, where there is plenty of bars, artisan food stalls, big screen TVs, live musical entertainment, seating, lawned areas – and lots of places to lay your bets! As the action begins, enjoy the excellent views of the traditional Royal Procession and all the afternoon’s racing, including the Gold Cup, one of the most celebrated events in the horseracing calendar. On this day last year, renowned jockey Frankie Dettori won four out of the six races, so keep an eye out for this leading course specialist! After the final race, we depart for our hotel, arriving in time to freshen up before dinner and our overnight stay.

Friday:  After breakfast we begin the journey home stopping en-route in the lovely city of Oxford where we have some free time to look around. Known as the city of Dreaming Spires and famous for its university colleges and magnificent architecture, the city also has plenty of shopping opportunities as well as quaint cafés and tearooms.

Helpful Information

The Windsor Enclosure is an informal area of Royal Ascot, but many racegoers choose to dress smartly for the occasion and this is encouraged. Replica sports shirts are not permitted.

The Queen Anne Enclosure ticket gives access to the Lower Grandstand, lawns and concourse. The Parade Ring and track are both within a short walking distance. Before the racing each day a military band will perform in the Parade Ring. Here the dress code is more prescriptive; men are required to wear a suit, shirt and tie, and ladies must wear smart, modest clothing with a hat, headpiece or fascinator. Very revealing or transparent clothing is not permitted; please see the Ascot Racecourse website for more detailed information www.ascot.co.uk
