An exciting day out. Time to get your best dress out and have a great time. Plenty of food outlets and bars. Very crowded but quite well organized. You can also have a flutter on the horses.

What a wonderful day at the races. Ladies can get their new hats and gents in their suits. A great day out and if you bet both ways..then a winning or two can be yours.

Most of the other enclosures offer no cover whatsoever so be prepared to get wet if it rains. Some of the bigger meeting you just book early as this... More

I came here in the summer for the Chester races. It such a good day with your friends. I really enjoyed myself, had some Pimms and a good laugh and I won on a few horses. Overall a great day!

Just a quick stop gap at the cafe bar in the Country grndstand after an exhausting trip round the antiques fair. But really cheerful staff and good value. Restaurant on different floor had more of a menu, but what we had we enjoyed. Also unusually, offered a glass of water with ice for free!

As a birthday present, we decided to investigate buying tickets for the race event on 31st August and with help from the telephone sales team opted for tickets in the County stand so that we would be under cover if it rained and would access to better facilities including unreserved seating. Two tickets cost £98 and our daughter was able... More

Quite good actually for a marathon Venue. They even supplied plastic showercap type shoe covers to stop our feet getting wet on the grass at the start. However. on visiting it the evening before, there were no signs for where to go, as we walked towards the main building in our sports over gear, A man who worked there shouted... More

Over the years I have had many trips to Chester race course even though it is a small course it is very popular and can get extremely busy. It is one of the country's oldest race courses. I very much enjoy each time I have visited here and would recommend to people of all ages.
