A thrilling day at Chester Races

Chester, Cheshire

You can’t beat a fantastic day at the races, so get dressed up and pick up your race card for a day of fun and socialising.

You can't beat the spectacle of seeing horses and jockeys race close up, the bustle around the betting ring and adrenaline rush of the race itself. Plus Chester is home to the oldest racecourse in Britain. Take a trip to the paddock to check out the horses and pick your favourite to back. Then it’s time to place your bets! Head to the outside betting ring or indoor betting hall, before securing a good view of the track.

After the race, celebrate your win with a glass of champagne at one of the many refreshment areas.  Collect your winnings and head back down to the track to try your luck again. After a long day, grab a bite to eat at one of the many central restaurants, or indulge in a delicious celebratory meal at Restaurant 1539.
