When it comes to horse racing in the UK, it is not just a sport of kings any more, it is available for everyone to participate in. Whether that is a winter day at Hexham watching jump racing, or a trip to take in Royal Ascot ladies day 2016. Horse racing is an experience that is enjoyed by everyone who attends. For those who love the class horses, then there is no shortage of racing events to see them in. Over the jumps are the Cheltenham and Aintree festivals, while on the flat the Epsom Derby meeting and Royal Ascot stand out.
Although jump racing tends to have more favourites that the general public follow, due to the same horses appearing year after year, it is the flat that involves some of the most beautiful and expensive thoroughbreds in the world. Apart from the Breeder’s Cup in America, there is really no bigger meeting than Royal Ascot Week in June. This event can be dated all the way back to 1768, while the racecourse itself dates back to 1711, all thanks to Queen Anne. These days the event covers five days, starting on the Tuesday and finishing on the Saturday.
Once again no doubt the biggest crowd puller for this Royal Ascot week will be Ladies Day at Ascot which is Thursday 16th June 2016. The Queen Anne Enclosure and the Windsor Enclosure are the best places to be, although anywhere on the racecourse still gives an experience that cannot be found elsewhere. The Queen attends this meeting on each day, and it is always a good idea to stand near the rails early to see her ride past in the royal carriage. This sets the scene for what is always guaranteed a day of fabulous top class racing.
Royal Ascot ladies day 2016 is not just for the females in society, but it is aimed at ensuring that they are the main focus for the day. There is always a best dressed competition, and sometimes a well-dressed lady will be selected to appear live on television. The dress code is important at Royal Ascot, and it is always best to review the information on their website, but generally the body should be reasonably covered, while the hat needs to be just that, a hat, and not something the size of a doughnut. There is some leeway depending on what enclosure is being attended.
Some of the ladies will spend months working out what it is that they will wear on the day. It is always worth checking the weather forecast when it comes to footwear, as the enclosures do include a lot of grass. When it comes to food and drink at the meeting, then it is always a high standard, and the restaurants and cafes do a lot of business. Champagne flows by the gallon, and along with the horses on show, this meeting stands out head and shoulders above any other horse racing anywhere in the world.
If you are going to be attending any of the racing during Royal Ascot Week 2016 then you need to be prepared for the traffic and the parking. The Royal Ascot parking is quite well organised but the sheer volume of traffic coming to the event will cause numerous hold ups on route and also finding parking. Your lady will not be wanting to walk very far in all her finery and hat.
Avoid all the stress and treat your lady like the Princess she is, book one of our Ascot Chauffeur Services and arrive at Royal Ascot feeling calm and relaxed. With our Ascot Chauffeur services you have a choice of vehicles from standard stretch limos, Hummer limos, a Bentley or a Rolls Royce. The choice will depend on your preference and the number in your party.
