Royal Ascot is one of the most famous race meetings anywhere in the world and one of the highlights of the UK racing calendar. The meeting plays host to several Group 1 races including the Coronation Stakes, the Queen Anne Stakes and, on Ladies Day, the prestigious Ascot Gold Cup. The event is also an important social occasion where fashion sometimes overshadows the actual racing! The highlight of each day at Royal Ascot is the eagerly anticipated Royal Procession, when at 2pm the Royal Party enters the Golden Gates and drives up the course in horse drawn carriages. Overnight stay, race tickets and coach to and from the track included.
