Mixing up those summer get togethers, Racing Breaks have access to some of the biggest summer fixtures and events at racecourses around the UK.
The long summer evenings are synonymous with the Flat season and plenty of quality racing at some of the best racecourses in the UK. A high season for socialising and being outdoors to enjoy the warm weather while it lasts, here are a few fixtures and events you need to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
Royal Ascot is at the top of the social calendar and if you were unable to attend this year or wanted to avoid the showers, do not let that put you off for next year. Royal Ascot is a must and a week that never fails to impress with its incredible racing action. Make the most of your trip by staying at a hotel nearby such as the 4* Christopher Wren; only 20 minutes from the racecourse. The perfect place to relax and enjoy time with friends before heading to the races.
If Royal Ascot doesn’t tickle your fancy then you must head to the Ebor Festival at York Racecourse in August. York is an amazing city, steeped in history and this festival features some of the oldest and richest races of the season including the Juddmonte International and of course, the Sky Bet Ebor. The week combines sporting excellence combined with fashion and fun over four fabulous days. York is only a 2 hour train journey from London but, if you are travelling from further away, there are a number of lovely hotels located in the city centre; only 10 minutes from the racecourse.
Dance to the beat of your own drummer.
It’s not just the horses you can enjoy at racecourses across Britain this summer. Make the most of the long evenings with top performances from artists such as Madness, Jess Glynne, Rick Astley, and the legendary Tom Jones. Concerts take place at racecourses after a full card of racing, all over the country, so you won’t feel the need to travel long distances as there is guaranteed to be one performance near you. If in the case you do have to travel, there are plenty of hotels available to book as a package through Racing Breaks. Most concerts are appropriate for all ages and children’s tickets can be purchased with any Adult ticket.
