Ascot Racecourse is one of the most well known racecourses in the UK despite it being based in the relatively small town of Ascot in Berkshire. The race course is used for horse racing and particularly for thoroughbreds.
When it comes to the horseracing world, Ascot is one of the most widely used race courses as it hosts nine of the United Kingdom’s 32 Group 1 races which are held on a yearly basis. Being located in such proximity to Windsor Castle (it’s about 6 miles away) has meant by default in some senses that the race course has become associated with the Royal family.
As well as the UK’s Group 1 races, Ascot is home to a number of other races such as 26 flat racing days across a year time span. It is also the venue for an array of jump races.
Royal Ascot is the Royal Meeting of the year and is held in June. It is the most significant event in Ascot’s diary and sees thousands flock to enjoy the occasion as well as the Queen and other important and significant members of the Royal family.
The event is not only a major event in Ascot’s calendar but is also a major event in the British public’s calendar. There is a huge amount of press coverage which looks at the event, its attendees and the subject of what each person wore as they attended the event. The fashion of the event is sometime more closely watched and admired.
Many groups of friends and businesses and other groups of people attend the event and want to do so with limited stress but with unlimited style. At 1st 4 Coaches, we are one of the leading travel companies and we are very successful when it comes to transporting people to and from major events.
