June events: Enjoy a flutter on the horses at Royal Ascot
Enjoy a quintessentially British day out at Royal Ascot – a highlight of the summer social calendar and one of the most exciting events of the year.
Royal Ascot attracts many of the world’s finest racehorses and jockeys, pitting them in fierce competition for over £7m in prize money. This meet has made legends of the finest thoroughbreds – Black Caviar, Frankel and Yeats are all Royal Ascot winners turned household names.
HM The Queen has attended every Royal Meeting during her reign, and the Royal Procession is always an iconic moment to herald the start of every race day. Royal Ascot has long been seen as a spectacle of fashion and style too; outfits worn at the meet are often referenced by news outlets across the world.
Yes, you could enjoy all the action on TV, but there's nothing quite like being at Ascot in person. Upgrade your experience with a fine meal for two from a Michelin starred chef, or just gather up a group of friends and soak up the atmosphere in the sun. However you do it, you're bound to have a memorable experience at Ascot.
