Chester Races

About

Chester Racecourse is the oldest Racecourse in Britain.

Whether entertaining clients, celebrating a special occasion with family or enjoying a day out with friends, a day at Chester races will be an unforgettable experience for all the right reasons! Chester is renowned for being a glamorous venue where style and fashion go hand in hand with the racing action.

Racing begins with the three day May Festival putting Chester in the racing spotlight nationally. After May, another 12 days / evenings of racing are on offer throughout the summer. Each fixture has its own unique identity to ensure a wide-ranging appeal. See race day fixtures on the right hand side of this page.
