Sorry to the purists here but Iā€™m writing this review with regard to the very excellent and hugely welcome dog walking facility that the racecourse open space provides. Yes, I make sure I ALWAYS pick up! Thank you for allowing us to use it!

The Chester Racecourse is a good day out with the lads / friends / partner. The cheaper tickets that we had (approx Ā£15 each) still gave a decent view of the race, and the usual food / ice cream / bars. There's good cover for poor weather, and if you're looking for a more 'high-end' experience, there's plenty of perks from the better tier tickets.

Just remember, take money to lose. Don't expect a get rich quick scheme!

Can be seen whilst circumnavigating the City Walls. Looks good for what it is intended and is well maintained. Horse racing has absolutely no interest for me whatsoever but for those that do like it, it looks reasonably good.

Really enjoyed my day at the races. Only down side - food options are limited and poor. Queued for a very long time to be told the veggie option had sold out and there was a half an hour wait. Couldn't be bothered to queue again so went to a burger van and had chips. The atmosphere was great even though we were unlucky with the weather. Definitely recommend!

Had a fabulous day here attending an event.

Packed full of places to eat and drink, amazing racecourse. You could play bowls on the course.

Amazing day and packed with well dressed people all enjoying them selves.

Looking forward to returning soon.

A visit to Chester Races is not like visiting any other racecourse. It is quaint as well as a terrific spectacle and whether you dress to the nines or go casual the atmosphere surrounds you in this small circular track as the support builds to a crescendo on the final furlongs willing their horse to be first to the winning post.

A nice racecourse, on the west side of Chester, you can see from the wall, or from the railway line. Well worth a visit.
