The Royal Ascot



Located in the small town of Ascot, Berkshire, the Royal Ascot dates back to 1711 when it was founded by Queen Anne. Every year the prestigious racing event is attended by the Queen and various members of the British Royal Family.

Since 1823, Thursdays have been known as “Ladies Day” at the Royal Ascot. Just imagine the film My Fair Lady, when Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle arrives in a magnificent gown and hat and is first noticed by the ever-so-handsome Freddy Eynsford-Hill. Dress codes of course will not be nearly as strict for you; however, still mandatory. This calls for ladies to come in a hat and a day dress, or top and skirt and gentlemen to arrive in suit with a shirt and tie.



*This could be you! 

Buy tickets via your personal page to attend this unmissable English event . Then alls you need to do is sit back and watch the races – just don’t forget your hat!
