Royal Ascot, 2015
One of the highlights of the horse racing season is fast approaching with the start next week of Royal Ascot, an event that features prominently in the British summer ‘season’, being patronised by the Queen and other members of the royal family, as well as attended by a large domestic and international cabal of the wealthy and well connected.
Royal Ascot runs from Tuesday 16th June through to Saturday 20th June. The racing on offer is of the highest quality, with the big races of the week being the Queen Anne Stakes on Tuesday, the Gold Cup on Thursday, and the Coronation Stakes on Friday.
Thursday at Royal Ascot is traditionally regarded as Ladies’ Day, and is a renowned fashion event in it’s own right, with the usual dazzling display of plumage from the world of millinery and an impressive show of sartorial elegance on the part of the discerning clientele.
Of course, being such a high profile racing event attracts large crowds looking both to see and be seen, and to enjoy the best of the British summer. For those wishing to avoid the long traffic jams and queues, Villiers Jets are able to organise private helicopter charters direct to Ascot Racecourse. If you are travelling from London this will be from London Heliport, however for those travelling from elsewhere – either domestically or internationally – please contact Villiers Jets to discuss your preferred departure point.
