Address: Station Hill, Ascot
Ascot High Street, with its shops, pubs, restaurants, ice-cream vendor, fairground, etc. is literally next to the racecourse.

Address: A329 Ascot High Street.
Not exactly "Off the Beaten Path" as it's by the A329 at Sunninghill, just past the B383 crossroads, one-and-a-half miles outside Ascot on the way to Virginia Water.
Tittenhurst Park (bought by Lennon in May, 1969 for just £145,000), opposite the Royal Berkshire Hotel, is where the film of John Lennon performing "Imagine" on a grand piano in a stately home was made. Ringo Starr bought the mansion off Lennon in 1973. The ruler of Abu Dhabi bought it off Ringo in 1988 & is the current owner/occupier.
The website link gets the address wrong! ...It incorrectly states "London Road, Sunningdale" which is a different place (the A30).
Go a little further, to the LH bend & there's a road on the right (running along the side of Tittenhurst Park), Whitmore Lane, which leads to Sunningdale Cemetery (at the back of Lennon's mansion) where acting legend Diana Dors is buried.

Favorite thing: Ascot Racecourse hosts one of the world's premier flat events annually during June. The local population swells with crowds of 150,000+ attending the 5 day event.
Ladies Day is by far the busiest and is a top draw for celebrities and fashionistas from around the globe. The attandance of the Queen of England further enhances the prestige of the occasion. The race meeting provides the local economy with a wealth of opportunity to make money.
Fondest memory: Growing up on the doorstep of such a venure provided many hours of fun when younger. We used to charge for lifts down the station hill path to "merry" racegoers using our push bikes as the taxi! We often fell foul of the gypsy heather sellers though as they felt they had missed an opportunity to make some money!!
Also have fond memories of the card sharks, pick the ace for a tenner..!
If you get the chance too, go! It's one of the best events of the UK summer.
