Royal Ascot Cottage Breaks

Royal Ascot is recogonised as one of the highlights of the British social calendar known almost as much for its tradition, pageantry, fashion and style as the horse racing. Held on the third week in June it's a magnificent spectacle, attended regularly by Royalty, with some of the best horse racing to be seen in the UK.

It will be a day to remember with each day of Royal Ascot starting with The Royal Procession from the Golden Gates along the race course to the Parade Ring from 2pm, with the first race starting at 2.30pm. The racing finishes at 5.35pm when racegoers can enjoy a traditional singing around the bandstand!

Royal Ascot Racing and Fashion

Royal Ascot is about the horse racing and during 5 days there are 18 prestigious, the World's best races, known as Group Races with some £4.5 million in prize money at stake.

With so much money at stake, it's no surprise that the best of racing talent is on show and many of the races names will be familiar to even those that know little of racing including the Gold Cup, Coronation Stakes, Kind Edward VII Stakes (known as the Ascot Derby), Prince of Wales Stakes and the Golden Jubilee Stakes (renamed the Diamond Jubilee Stakes in 2012).

Although each day has a very similar format, over the 5 days each day has a different feel to it and so it is worth considering which is the best day for you.

  • Tuesday is the first day of Royal Ascot and so lots of new fashion is on show but in practice this tends to be a relaxed day
  • Wednesday has the Prince of Wales Stakes which caries the most prize money. The day is considered best for groups of friends to enjoy the day at a gentler pace
  • Thursday is better known as Ladies Day so style, fashion and elegance come to the fore on what is also Gold Cup Day. Thursday is definitely the day to see all designer hat creations and fashion that are covered so fully by the media each year
  • Friday featues the Coronation Stakes and the King Edward Vii Stakes and so plenty of good racing to see, a perfect start to a weekend
  • Saturday, the final day of Royal Ascot, has the prestigious Golden Jubilee Stakes (Diamond Jubilee Stakes in 2012) which is considered one one of the world's most important races. It is also a great day for families to attend as, although fashion is still to the fore it has a relaxed weekend feel to it with a more diverse weekend crowd.
