Cheltenham National Hunt Festival
This is the World Cup of jump racing, for four days in March every year the greatest horses, jockeys and trainers descend on the beautiful Cotswold track along with hundreds of thousands of racegoers. Each day of the festival features a strong grade one feature race so get your tweed jackets out and make the pilgrimage down to Gloucestershire.
Probably the most glamorous racing festival in the world, nothing compares to the splendour of the Royal meeting with the Queen and Prince Phillip making their daily procession by horse drawn carriage from Windsor Castle down the centre of the track before taking their seats in the Royal Box. The racing always lives up to the hype with some of the best flat racing in the world.
