Royal Ascot is an amazingly fun and fabulous day out, but it is also quite long so here are some tips to help you get through the day with no problems!
Our first tip is to have a big breakfast! Of course, there are lots of different food stools and chances to eat but the day will be quite long so it’s easier to have lots of energy and not rushed to eat.
Unfortunately, hats aren’t waterproof! This isn’t good news if typical English weather takes over. We highly recommend you pack away a tiny umbrella that will cover your hat just in case a small shower hits the course. It’s better to be over prepared than have a soggy hat!
Following the previous tip, a bag with a strap will be very helpful. We know that a clutch bag is the best way to make your outfit look simple and stylish, but having an attachable strap is the best of both worlds. During the day you can tuck the strap away neatly into the bag and then when your arms get tired from carrying it at the end of the day just take it out and rest it comfortably on your shoulders. This way you can keep your things easily nearby and all in one place (including your tiny umbrella)
As betting is one of the key things to do on race day, a set budget will be very helpful. You may think you are an extremely responsible person with a real talent of sticking to a budget. Well, come race day these traits will be lost on you! With the vibrant energy on the course you will want to take it over the top and put down as much as you can without thinking. This happens to every single one of us! If you have a set amount, then you won’t feel as carried away.
Take lots of pictures! Our final tip may be an obvious one, but with the excitement people often forget to take pictures. It’s a really fun day where you dress your best so don’t miss out on capturing the memories. It’s also good to take pictures at the start of the day when your outfit is fresh and ready to go, so that it can be seen in the best possible light.
We hope you have a fabulous day!
