Derby Day Carousel

Posh frock, big hat and high heels were what I wore to Ladies Day on Friday when Mr CW and I sallied forth without children but with friends for a posh day in the Grandstand for the races.  Saturday and Derby day was an entirely different kettle of fish.  Jeans, warm jumpers and a picnic are far more suitable accessories for our annual family outing to the Epsom Derby, not in the expensive stands but on the Hill.  There are many noisy and scary fairground rides on offer here but the carousel is my favourite and the horses just as likely to win as the ones that I actually backed.

    All our kids love a good carousel too – it’s great to see them enjoying old-fashioned rides like this.

    Ohhh the carousel. How I used to love to ride them. I would drive me parents crazy until they gave in. Thanks for the memories with this fantastic shot of Henry! He looks magnificent.

    I do love the traditional rides too. Both days sound amazing in their own way.

      Huge queues so we contented ourselves with gawping and a whoosh down the helter skelter instead!

    A great capture. My brother lives in Epsom but I don’t think he has ever been to the Derby #MySundayPhoto

      Well worth the walk up to the Downs. You can watch for free on the hill.
