After breakfast we travel to Royal Ascot racecourse where first we have a behind the scenes tour which lasts approximately 45 minutes and will include visits to the Parade Ring, weighing room and up to the 4th floor of the  Grandstand for amazing views. Find out about some of the history and traditions of the Royal Racecourse and if you are brave enough, step on the jockeys weighing scales!

Today is the first day of the famous King George VI Weekend, and is one of Ascot’s most            prestigious race meetings outside Royal Ascot and there should be a competitive six-race card,      including the John Guest Brown Jack Stakes. This race commemorates the racing  legend, who won at no less than seven different Royal Meetings. Also on the card is the Carraig Insurance EBF Stallions Valiant Stakes.  The first race is at 1.50 and the last at 5.05  Besides the horse racing,  people watching is a great sport especially the fashion of some of the  young fillies.

Our ticket is for the King Edward VII enclosure which used to be known at the Premier Stand which means  that you can sit and watch each race from the Stands.
