Attending the Ascot Races near London

By Philippa Burne, UK, June 2012

No reviews, be the first!

Horse-racing at Royal Ascot is one of the most important social, fashion and sporting events of the year in England.

First run in 1711 under the auspice of Queen Anne, tradition continues with a daily horse-drawn procession from Windsor Castle to the racecourse. The Royal carriage goes first and often carries the Queen herself as she’s keen on horse-racing and has owned many champion horses. 2012 is her Diamond Jubilee Year so she is likely to be seen even more than usual.
