The Dates to Be Aware of for This Year’s Chester Races

Chester has a little bit of everything to make it a fantastic place for tourists to visit, including the oldest racecourse in the world according to last year’s Guinness World Records. This is an unmissable venue that horse racing fans just have to visit at one point in their lives.

Every year the Chester Racecourse, also known as the Roodee, plays host to the Chester Races. The Chester Races consists of 15 racing fixtures during the summer months. The 2020 season begins in May with the Boodles May Festival which is set to take place just before the May Bank Holiday. The fixtures include special days such as Ladies Day, Roman Day, Summer Saturday and Family Funday, before the season concludes at the end of September.
