What is "Ascot"?
Royal Ascot is the event of the year on the British racing calendar – getting in is no mean feat on your pocket, or on your social connections.
If racing is your thing, and you aspire to attend Ascot, then you should know how to pronounce it correctly. Those ‘in the know’ say Ascot with a neutral vowel where the ‘o’ is. Take a look at the phonetic spelling for more details (you can hover over the coloured letters for an explanation). Those with more social aspiration than savoir faire say the ‘cot’ as spelled.
