Chester

One of the most popular tracks in the world, Chester's facilities blend in well with the ancient charm of the course where racing enthusiasts can elect to watch the action from viewpoints as diverse as the Roman walls overlooking the track or the modern County Stand. The three-day May meeting and the Sunday fixture in August attract huge crowds and it is advisable to arrive early. A round, tight, left-handed track, the action is never far away and the contours provide exhilarating, non-stop action. Chester Racecourse, Grey Friars, Chester CH1 2LY.
