About Us

Where better to introduce this year’s Heritage Festival than at the oldest racecourse in the land. Established in 1539, racing has taken place on the Roodee for 480 years and this year’s Heritage Festival programme will be introduced at the Roman Day fixture. Join Festival organisers and enjoy a host of activities out on the Open Course. This family themed race day is especially fun for youngsters who can learn some fascinating facts about their Cestrian ancestors and witness some spectacular sporting displays both on and off the track. Chester Racecourse as sponsors of this event are giving Chester residents living in a CH1-4 postcode and those in receipt of this leaflet a special half-price discount* when tickets are purchased in person at the Chester Racecourse Box Office.

    The wall walk takes you past the race course and it looked stunning as it was a sunny day in Februaury. A lovely open space at a small race course and ideal for a picnic Read full review
