In association with Ambassador Travel I extend a warm welcome to join me on this Royal Ascot Racing Tour. This is undoubtedly one of the greatest race meetings in the world as well as being the most celebrated social events of the year. In the past Australian horses have met with success at Royal Ascot and I have no doubt that we will once again have a strong representation in 2020. There are few sporting events that can match the rich history of racing at Royal Ascot with champion thoroughbreds from across the globe including Hong Kong, the USA, New Zealand and of course, Australia competing. The tour includes the first and final day of this prestigious race week, highlighted by the King’s Stand and Golden Jubilee Stakes, and you will have the opportunity to attend any of the other race days.
As well as Royal Ascot no doubt another of the highlights will be our visit to Newmarket. Renowned as the horse racing capital of Europe with a history dating as far back as 1174. It is also the European base to two of the largest racing and breeding conglomerates in the world – Darley and Juddmonte Farms, and during our stay we will experience a stallion parade at both Dalham Hall and Banstead Manor.
At our welcome dinner at the Bedford Lodge in Newmarket, enjoy an informal dinner in the company of special guests including English and Australian racing identities who will share their insight on the forthcoming races. At the completion of the tour you have the option of extending your stay and joining us on the Irish Derby Tour or further travel throughout England and Europe.
