A day at the races
One of the most popular fixtures of the 'Summer Season', Royal Ascot, where high stakes mix effortlessly with high fashion on the Berkshire Downs, is not only one of the most important events in the racing calendar, but also somewhere to 'see and be seen' - especially on stylish Ladies' Day.
Royal Ascot is the racing highlight of the summer season. With a 250-year history and GBP4.5 million in prize money on offer, its atmosphere is unique. You'll find the glamour and sophistication of high society mixed with the drama of the Gold Cup, the very best in flat-racing action.

Leaving your local area in the early morning, you'll travel into central London, where there'll be the chance to soak up the summertime atmosphere of the capital for a few hours. Your friendly Tour Manager will be on hand to 'point you in the right direction' and help you to make the most of your time.
Take in some famous sights, perhaps enjoy a stroll in a Royal park, head to the shops and stores of the West End or trendy Covent Garden, or treat yourself to afternoon tea in style, before re-boarding the coach to head to the overnight hotel. Rest and relax, perhaps enjoying a bite to eat or a drink in the bar, and look forward to tomorrow's day at the races.
After breakfast at the hotel and the chance to put finishing touches to the day's outfits, board the coach for the journey to Royal Berkshire and the racecourse at Ascot. Upon arrival, there's the chance to soak up the atmosphere of the world-famous event; admire the fashion statements, enjoy a bite to eat - with a glass of pre-race bubbly perhaps - wander the stylish 'Ascot shops', or study the afternoon's Race Card for likely winners and place a first bet. Then, take your place in the Windsor Enclosure (or Queen Anne Enclosure) to watch the procession down the course of the Royal Party, as they make their way in open-top carriages from the Golden Gate, signalling the start of the day's racing.
Enjoy the excitement and colour of some of the world's finest thoroughbreds and most famous jockeys in action throughout the six-race programme, and at day's end, re-board the coach for the return journey home, arriving back in the local area by late evening at the end of a wonderful two-day break.
