My daughter's choice of a day at the races for her 18th birthday so I arranged a weekend in Chester (we live in Leeds area) as a special treat to include a friend for a girlie time. With County Stand tickets we arrived (our outfits suitable for Ascot!) The taxis aren't allowed to drop off in front of the racecourse... More

What a wonderful little course. Good location with lots of history and heritage along the city wall. The stands and facilities are good also.

2 day race meeting starting Fri 12/9. We decided to go on the Friday rather than the Saturday as having read previous reviews we were put off by the likelihood of a much bigger crowd in what appears to be a limited space. We purchased Grandstand tickets in advance £30 buy one get one free (offer available Fri but not... More

We had a table for a meal and the food was lovely. It was a busy day on a Saturday, but it was really enjoyable. The sun was shining all day, so nice to walk around and see the horses.

You can never go wrong with a day at the races unless you loose. I recently went the Bet Fair weekend and loved every minute. You can even take the family and sit on the open course, not very good for racing enthusiasts but you can take all your own food and drink. If going in the tats, facilities are... More

The visit started badly as the traffic was horrendous. Roads were blocked off and there were no signs to direct you to suitable parking. So by the time we had got into the course we had missed the first race. Not impressive when you have spent £30 to get onto the course. There was nowhere to sit down except on... More

We had a table in the final furlong suite. Carvery meal, open bar, attentive service, friendly staff, and great surroundings for a corporate day. If you have the weather, it's a brucie bonus! out into the town at night, what a great place to party!

We went on the Friday and it was relatively quiet. The Saturday meeting would be almost twice. As busy.
