Over the past 300 years, Ascot has established itself as a national institution; with Royal Ascot becoming the centrepiece of the British social calendar and the ultimate stage for the best racehorses in the world.
The annual meeting spans over five days and each day begins at 2:00pm with a Royal Procession along the famous Straight Mile in horse-drawn landaus.
