Dress up for the most glamourous day on the sporting and social calendar this year and sample Royal Ascot on Ladies Day for yourself. Founded by Queen Anne in the 1700s, today it guarantees to be one of the most prestigious events of the year with thousands from all over the country making the annual trip for one of the country’s greatest institutions.

Whether you choose from tickets for the Queen Anne Enclosure or the Windsor Enclosure, it is a truly unforgettable day not to be missed.
Prices including tickets for the Queen Anne Enclosure (formerly the Grandstand) are £120.00 per person or the Windsor Enclosure (formerly the Silver Ring) are £79.00 per person.
Prices are only valid until Wednesday 29th March. After this date, we cannot guarantee tickets due to group rates no longer available.

Due to popular demand, we have an additional date for our day trip to Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty’s Theatre. We’ve once again secured a top price stalls ticket for the matinee performance.
Having celebrated its 30th anniversary in the West End last year, it’s no surprise it’s one of the all-time favourites; it has won several accolades including three Olivier Awards and seven Tony awards. With exceptional casts, visual effects, stunning costumes and quoted as a “spectacular piece of true theatre”, it continues to reach worldwide audiences. Don’t miss your chance to see Andrew Lloyd Webber’s interpretation of the gothic novel of the same name and its score of hits like ‘Think of Me’ and ‘All I Ask of You’.
Why travel to a West End show with Woods Tours?
- Coach travel is a convenient way to travel to London
- Local pick-up points in Leicester
- The driver will set you down close to the theatre (as parking restrictions dictate)
- Cost effective – individual top price tickets plus travel costs may add up to more than our prices
Extra dates for theatre shows are added regularly to our day trip programme, please check our website listings.
Woods Tours have a day trip to Phantom of the Opera on Thursday 27th July 2017. Please click here for more information or to make a booking.

Nothing quite says Spring is nearly upon us like the appearance of Daffodils. So why not celebrate the warmer weather and longer days being just around the corner as we visit Cambridgeshire’s beautiful village Thriplow for its annual Daffodil Weekend?
Ever since 1969, the village has opened private gardens to the public and today is one of the best-loved charity events in the region. Be among the thousands of visitors and amble through the village’s traffic-free lanes and enjoy the friendly atmosphere. There is usually plenty of craft stalls each year to pick up a unique gift, alongside some of the best local food producers and tea and home-made cake, plus vintage vehicles, Morris dancers, Heavy Horses, music and more.
All proceeds go to charitable organisations, and different varieties of daffodils are planted to ensure they’re prepared for all that the weather may throw at us!
Woods Tours have a day trip to Thriplow Daffodils on Sunday 19th March 2017. Please click here for more information or to make a booking.
