Royal Ascot, Ladies Day.

During Royal Ascot week, Thursday is Ladies Day. It's a holiday and the ladies come from all over the country, from all walks of life, all wearing outrageous hats and dressed up for a holiday at the races. The racecourse has been there since Victorian times so there is practically no space for car parking. Parking areas are set up around the town and people walk from there and from the railway station, having used the train to avoid the horrendous traffic jam at the end of the day.
