Royal AscotRoyal Ascot returns to the Berkshire racecourse where it has been a pretty much an annual fixture since 1711. With nearly 4 million in prize money at stake, this meeting attracts all the biggest names in the racing fraternity. And, of course, more than 300,000 visitors, all dressed in their finest attire. Ascot is as famous for its hats as it is for the racing, especially on 'Ladies Day'. Every year the ladies try to outdo each other with tremendous towering creations and outlandish designs. The gents usually go for a more understated look - with morning suits and top hats the norm. It's as much a giant outdoor party as a race meet: unters at the track will drink over 150,000 bottles of champagne, 14,000 bottles of Pimms and, of course, will place untold millions in bets.

About Ascot Racecourse

For the past three centuries, Ascot has been a centrepiece of the British racing season. Its most celebrated event, Royal Ascot, is also an essential part of the aristocracy's social calendar. The queen attends (Ascot is just six miles away from Windsor Castle), and the third day - 'ladies day' - is as much a fashion show as a race meeting, with the rich and famous (and the 'Made in Chelsea' set) out in force to show off their most glamorous headgear.
