Seemed to get less for our money this time. County stand tickets used to get you into most areas but not so this time. Will save our money next year and go in Tattersals. Still had great day despite weather not being as good as hoped.

Great day out for all of the family, but I went with work colleagues on this day,smart attire required, with the excitement of the races, and being able to get a pint on the course was great! Excellent day out!

It is an old racecourse,the Roodee Fields, going back 500 years. Here the jockeys really have to look out for the sudden turns or the centrifugal force could create havoc. But the course is nice and inviting, but since it is quite long, it can also be a tiring one for the horses.

Great day out a chester races. Plenty of bars and eating places. Drinks can be a little pricy but that is expected at these events.

We've visited Chester races a couple of times and have previously paid for Tattersall tickets and been disappointed with their facilities; long toilet queues, extortionate drink prices with long queues, questionable clientele... We thought we'd give the open £12 option a go. We booked online with box office collection, seamless and meant no queuing. We took a picnic blanket, a... More

Visited - as a coach party - Chester on Saturday 16th for a days entertainment. We'd been advised to pay £ 35.00 for access to Tattershalls having never visited the venue before. Bought on the website two tickets for £ 35.00 each, plus booking fee of £ 3.50 and a postal charge of £ 5.00. In due course the tickets... More

This must be one of the only race courses that is within a five minute walk from the town centre. We had a great day and even picked a couple of winners. We will definately return....

As a regular race goer and previous annual member , it's sad to see that whilst badge prices remain high standards seem to be dropping We paid for county concourse badges and ladies toilets inside the main stand were disgusting after only the 2nd race Queues at the bar again inside the stand were long ( not many in front...

Race day in Chester is a sight to see. Everyone elegantly dressed taking the walk from Town to the Race course. The atmosphere is amazing, Weather permitting an excellent day out with friends and family alike. Alcohol and food is reasonable just make sure you don't loose your shirt playing the odd's
