Dating royal crown derby
It is only during the 5-day June meeting that the huge Berkshire racetrack becomes officially known as "Royal" - and a regal stamp on this occasion is clearly defined by the magnificent horse drawn procession at the beginning of each day that brings members of the family from Windsor Castle down the main straight to their own "Royal Enclosure".The meeting is steeped in history dating back to 1711 when it was begun by Queen Anne.There are free seats on in its stand or cheer the horses as they enter the home straight by the rails.While the racing is undeniably first class, it is often the action off the track that is the main attraction.PP Travel has the largest marquee area in this coach park, an ideal place for a picnic before the races.
