Royal Ascot, a classic event


The world’s best horses race in London

Royal Ascot, a horse race which takes place at the Royal Ascot Racecourse in Berkshire, is a British summer highlight which is traditionally opened by none other than Queen Elizabeth and regularly features the presence of London’s high society, as well as that of the international community. Ascot’s first race took place in 1711, being opened officially by Queen Anne, and had its first event similar to today’s format in 1768.

Although the race in itself is a world-famous event, quite often the main talking point of the week are the outfits used by those watching: women go for spectacularly extravagant big hats, with men opting for dapper top hats.

Royal Ascot 2017 will occur over five days, with a full schedule of races each day, and will attract trainers of all types of race horses, with over £6.5 million in prize money expected to be doled out to the winners.


When: 20 to 24 June

Where: Ascot Racecourse, Berkshire
