Enjoy a day out at the races.
Home to the oldest horse races in Britain, dating back the 5th century, Chester Racecourse, known as the 'Roodee', stands beside the River Dee, on the site of Chester's massive Roman harbour. Parts of the ancient harbour can still be seen.
Chester Racecourse is ranked as the fourth best attended course in the UK. Flat racing takes places from May to September, with the Chester Cup held in May.
