We have enormous fun – as we do every year, at the stand out event in Ascot, Berkshire. We are of course talking about Royal Ascot!
Royal Ascot is often much maligned – but, we have to say, we love seeing the hoy polloy, the royal visits and of course, outstanding racing from the worlds best trainers and jockeys.
Ladies day is an event in itself and seeing all the lady’s with their fascinators, hats, fashion statements (good and bad) is as much an event as the race meeting itself.
Founded more than 300 years ago, Royal Ascot is testament to our country’s love of horse racing. Attended by over 300,000 people in the 5 days that it is on is in itself a fantastic boost for all businesses surrounding the ascot area. It is also a phenomenal task for all involved from Traffic Control, organisers, vendors and local residents who in the main put up with the traffic in order to celebrate this fantastic week celebrating our culture and love of fine dining, royalty, beautiful people and we love meeting up with local businesses and our friends with whom we have a great time.
Here’s a few images from our recent visit to this great event.
