Visit England for Royal Ascot Week 2017

  • Written by Greg Rogers

More than a horse racing event, Royal Ascot Week is renowned as one of England's most famous traditional events.

It is a series of important horse races, and at the same time it is a celebration of English culture. Why not be there yourself?

This year could be the time to get out of your every day routine and you should consider arranging some time off with your partner, or friends or even by yourself, to travel to the U.K. for Royal Ascot Week. It is special!

Since 1711, European elite and every day folks have gathered at Ascot, a race track in Berkshire, to meet with close friends or business associates to enjoy fine food, sunshine and the atmosphere of being among very interesting people while they watch members of the Royal Family as they proceed in carriages on the famous turf before cheering crowds. This year, Royal Ascot can expect to once again play host to over 300,000 people from around the World.

While the premier race day is the focus of the week, visitors have a vast array of tours, displays, concerts, feasts and theatrical events to choose from. Royal Ascot Week is about having fun and placing a bet on the horse of your choice while taking in everything that England can offer in the Summer. It is a time of celebration and making new friends. For those who cannot get to Royal Ascot this year it is still possible to back your favourite horses.

From Australia, travellers should book ahead with Qantas or British Airways so as to get keen pricing options and first choice of seats for the long haul flight. Once in the U.K., tour companies offer all inclusive stay and play package deals with accommodation, local travel, meals and entry to Royal Ascot over the exciting week that is full of festivities.

The English do "sporting culture" very well. Think tennis at Wimbledon or the FA Cup at Wembley or cricket at The Oval. Royal Ascot is a sporting event and a prime opportunity to witness the bond between "The English" and their monarch.

Royal Ascot has been shown in feature films including a James Bond Episode and My Fair Lady. There might even be a movie being made this year, so to be a part of one of the U.K.'s most famous race meetings, book your flights, accommodation and tours

If you can make it to Royal Ascot this year you will probably need to set off to your favourite fashion shops to purchase some elegant formal wear as well as your travel arrangements.
