Royal Ascot may be over for another year, but the King George Weekend means you can still experience all the action in case you missed it. For the real racing enthusiasts, Saturday’s feature race is the highly anticipated King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes, whereas Sunday’s Family Day means younger newcomers can get easily acquainted with the sport. As ever at Ascot, it’s the entertainment and luxury gourmet away from the track that captivates the attentions of race-goers just as much as the horses, and we bring you our round-up of the restaurants you should be dining at.

Meanwhile, next week sees the start of Glorious Goodwood, and it’s Thursday’s Ladies Day that’s generating the most talk. Model Edie Campbell and jeweller Philippa Holland are amongst the celebrities taking the reins in a race to raise money for charity. Designers including Vivienne Westwood, Beulah London and the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding dress designer Sarah Burton have created the jockey silks that the celebrity riders will be wearing on the day. Take a look here!

But if a day at the races really does sound a bit too much like hard work, we bring you our list of the best Art Hotels to relax in, so wherever you are in the world, you can still luxuriate in style. Speaking of which, what happens when you cross fashion with food? Roberto Cavalli’s new restaurant opening in Ibiza is what! We reveal all here.
