Chester is a beautiful place, however, when race day comes take cover.. The city us taken over by drunk, fighty, abusive, loud obnoxious people. They dramatically change from normal middle class day trippers to falling over, sick, bloody noses, fighting horrible people. My idea of hell.

Went to the races with 27 girlfriends, was brilliant day, stayed overnight in holiday inn express very close by which was worth doing. Weather was good which was helpful, plenty of staff serving drinks and food, and lots of variety in both. Will look forward to returning.

A great day out with friends and family. Usually at least once a year they also have a family day. Dress up or dress down depending on which part of the racecourse you are visiting.
