After May, Chester Racecourse hosts further day and evening fixtures throughout the summer months. Each fixture has its own unique identity to ensure a wide ranging appeal. Chester Racecourse is also the only Racecourse to have an in-house betting system; chesterBET.

Author's Review

Chester Racecourse is one of the oldest Racecourses in Britain and is a popular venue to a lot of race goers, not just for the racing aspect but also for the many events that happen there every year. Along with Chester, there is also their sister course at Bangor on Dee which is also worth a visit. I liked the compactness of Chester, and their whole ethos of making a day at the races, just as much a family day out, as it is for its thousands of visitors it has every year. With the inclusion of a couple of great places to eat inside the course, you won’t be stuck for choice when it comes to having a bite to eat. Throughout the year there are lots of events to attend, even though there may not be a race on, with a concise and informative website it is worth checking it out to see if there is something going on that might interest you.
