Ascot Week 2016

16 June, 2016

Royal Ascot week is running from June 14th until June 18th this year and is the biggest flat racing event of the year, with 30 races over 5 days; 6 races per day. As a keen horse rider and owner of racehorses, Her Majesty the Queen is always in attendance and has been since her debut in 1947. Now on day three for 2016, or Ladies Day, of this globally renowned event, the weather is holding up and the dresses and hats are getting more and more beautiful by the day. Ascot Racecourse was founded in 1711 by Queen Anne and represents the centrepiece for Ascot’s year with over 3000,000 people making the annual visit to Berkshire during Royal Ascot week, making it the best attended race meet in Europe.
