Horse racing at Chester Races

Celebrate heritage and history at the world's oldest racecourse

Horseracing began at Chester Racecourse in 1539 – two centuries before the United States was founded. This makes Chester Racecourse the world’s oldest racecourse still in operation. In the nearly half millennium we’ve been racing, a lot of important events have taken place at both the racecourse and in the city of Chester. Roman Day provides the perfect opportunity for us to delve into this combined history and put on a show for both racing spectators and local residents.

Why not book into one of our renowned hospitality enclosures? The Final Furlong offers you an unrivalled atmosphere, as well as a front-row seat for all the action. Or maybe Restaurant 1539 is the spot you’ve been looking for, where you can get a birds eye view of the race days events. Our general admission enclosures are also set to impress, with a wide range of bars and eateries across the racecourse serving up drinks and food to suit every taste.

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.
