Shoppers need not brave the snow and hit the shops in search of the perfect Mother’s Day present this year with a range of gift experiences at Ascot Racecourse available to buy online or over the phone, from the warmth and comfort of home.
2018’s first family day and Ascot’s final fixture of the 2017-18 National Hunt Season, the Spring Family Raceday will keep the whole family entertained with dramatic Jumps racing, fun attractions and hands-on activities for all ages.
As mum gathers tips and chooses a horse to back, children can explore the safe racecourse environment and enjoy a range of free interactive activities from foraging, honey bee workshops, and hedgehog meet and greets to ferret racing, bug hotel making and a visit from Peter Rabbit.
Instead of taking flowers to mum this Mothers’ Day, bring mum to the flowers instead with Prosecco afternoon tea for two and tickets to the inaugural Ascot Spring Garden Show, organised in association with the Gardens of Windsor Great Park.
This high-quality boutique event is one of the first major horticulture events of the year making an ideal gift for the green fingered. Enjoy inspiring show gardens, specialist nurseries with plants for sale, quality exhibitors and free expert advice in the surrounds of the world-famous Ascot Racecourse. Making a day at the Ascot Spring Garden Show even sweeter, a botanical-themed Afternoon Tea has been designed by the talented Ascot chefs in partnership with celebrated pâtissière Claire Clark. Served with an accompanying glass of Prosecco, sittings are available at 1pm and 3pm.
The Royal Meeting’s spectacular heritage has made the event anticipated and revered the world over. From the arrival of the Royal Procession at 2pm sharp to communal singing around the Bandstand, with six top-class races between, each of the five days is truly unforgettable. Like nowhere else, Royal Ascot offers racegoers the perfect combination of Flat racing, fashion and pageantry with an array of Fine Dining experiences adding the final ingredient for an unforgettable day.
Royal Ascot Fine Dining packages start from £269 + VAT per person, to include admission ticket, private or shared table for the day, viewing terrace, arrival drink and complimentary bar, lunch and afternoon tea, car parking, tipster and racecard.
