Horse racing at Chester Racecourse

Experience the electric energy at one of Chester's busiest meetings

City Plate Day is arguably one of our most popular fixtures here at Chester Racecourse. Each year it draws racegoers from across the country who flock to the Roodee to experience the unique atmosphere, with its tangible sense of excitement as the gates first open.

Fixtures like City Plate Day are placed to take full advantage of the Great British summer. As we reach the middle of July, so to do we meet the middle of Summer. As the sun rises higher and sets later, these meetings are an ideal place to spend a sunny afternoon with your nearest and dearest. The world’s oldest racecourse is uniquely pitched to offer racegoers an experience unlike any other. As well as our unmatched city centre location – with restaurants, bars and shops a 5 minute walk away, we also offer some of the finest hospitality in the region. There’s truly no better place to spend your Saturday.

This year the early bird definitely catches the worm, as we’re rewarding customers that book early with the best ticket prices. Ticket prices are split into different categories, with the lowest price always going to those that book early. This means the quicker you book, the better price you’ll get!

For group bookings, please call the box office on 01244 304610 or email enquiries@chester-races.com.

To give you reassurance when booking, any customer who purchases a ticket for a future fixture will be entitled to a transfer or full refund in the event it is cancelled.

Please note that all tickets will be subject to a £1.25 per ticket administration fee.
