Kick off the spring season at Ascot’s first family race day of the year, taking place on Mother’s Day. Alongside top class racing, there will be plenty of countryside themed activities for children, including den building, foraging and cooking demos with James Wood, ferret racing and a petting zoo. Children can also enjoy an appearance from the Gruffalo, the Shetland Pony Grand National, entertainment from Bubble Joe & Anton the Juggler, a ’20 things to do before you’re 12′ experience and face painting. There are plenty of dining options to choose from, including the fine dining Parade Ring restaurant and the fifth floor On 5 Restaurant, which boasts panoramic views of the racecourse. Alternatively, enjoy afternoon tea on the sixth floor of the grandstand, or dine in the Horsewalk Restaurant in the King Edward VIP Enclosure, where mothers will be treated to a free main course.
Located in Berkshire near Windsor Castle, Ascot is one of the leading racecourses in Britain. They run various family-friendly events throughout the year, including a summer raceday in July, a fireworks raceday in November and a Christmas raceday in December.
