Create an itinerary including Chester Racecourse
Whether you enjoy betting, horses, or just a fun day out, consider visiting Chester Racecourse, known as the Roodee. The racecourse is conveniently located a short distance from hotels, bars, shopping, and restaurants. Check out the horses and jockeys, take a chance at the betting ring, or just enjoy some social time. For ladies, it’s an opportunity to don a fancy dress and hat, although sensible footwear is recommended. Certain areas have a strict dress code, so be sure to check in advance. Also be prepared to turn off your camera flash. You cannot place bets once a race starts, but you can redeem winning tickets any time during the day. You can find refreshments in betting areas, but if you would prefer to eat at one of the restaurants, be sure to pre-book.

  • I never expected myself to be excited about the horse race course but was proven wrong. 🏇 Sitting a stone's throw from the city centre, Chester race course seems to offer an ample sitting area across multiple sections and tidy surrounding area. It gives off an interesting vibe which combined with the picturesque red sunset makes up for a peculiarly stunning scene...
  • This is the nicest race course in my opinion in England. Its clean. Its stylish. It serves good food. Plenty of places to get drinks from and put bets on. The view is good from various parts of the track. When the weather is good this place is a banger. If you like racing and a day out with family or friends this is the one to visit.
  • Amazing day for the races. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and highly recommend a day out. Extremely busy but the bar staff managed despite the high volume
  • Loved it, had a great day there... however wear something warm and comfy shoes, best thing is I won a few squid probably beginners luck... certainly go again, thanks Chester races xx
  • If you enjoy horse racing, then it's excellent. Went there for a stag-do and the facilities are great, atmosphere is entertaining, and everything is well run. If you're not fussed on horse racing, you are just standing around in a field though.
