Ascot. The home of horses, jockeys, and women in silly hats. The racecourse adjoining Windsor Great Park is best known as the venue for Royal Ascot, which this year marked a landmark event in which the sovereign's horse won first place. Although all that excitement has died down there is still plenty more to look forward to at Ascot throughout the year. It is only a fifty minute drive from London, so well worth a day trip.

[ADVERT] The is the next big race, and is scheduled for the 10th August. Considered Britain's premier jockeys' competition, it is a unique contest consisting of six races and four teams: Great Britain, Europe, the Rest of the World, and the Girl's Team.

If you can ignore the fact that women have been segregated into a league of their own (apparently we aren't a part of any country), the Shergar Cup is an all inclusive event, with activities that the whole family can enjoy.

Aside from the race itself there will be fairground rides, a soft play area, pony rides, workshops, and extreme skateboarding/scooter displays. There will also be live music performances from bands such as Blue, Atomic Kitten, and singer, Bjorn.

Tickets are £27 for grandstand admission or £47 for premier admission; all under 18s go free.

Ascot offer a wide range of places to eat. You can experience fine dinning at The Windsor Forest Restaurant, casual dinning on the Pavilion, afternoon tea by the bandstand, as well as fast food favourites like fish and chips, burgers, and pizza. You can also bring your own picnic.
