A DAY AT CHESTER RACES

A DAY AT CHESTER RACES

If you are planning a holiday in the UK, then Chester should be your next destination. Though, Chester offers some beautiful gardens, culture, fine dining, industrial and historic houses experiences; yet, one of the greatest attractions of this city is its horse race. In fact, this city is quite famous for its horse racing. A visit to Chester is only complete when you visit the Chester Racecourse irrespective of the racing event. At this point, I’d advise you to get ready to be thrilled by Chester Races.

There are about 59 licensed racecourses in the United Kingdom, including courses in Wales and Northern Ireland. Chester is the oldest among them, dating back to the early 16th century. It was established in February 1539 and it was during the reign of Henry the 8th that the first race took place. Ever since the first race, tickets have been sold to promote a great family day out at the Roodee (Chester Racecourse).

If you come off Northgate Street, heading toward the racecourse, you will find a set of staircase locks that is linked to the canal that cuts through the city to the canal basin at Telfords Wharf. At this point, it joins the second canal that passes out of the Shropshire Union. From the minute you walk through the gates, you will begin to enjoy the mix of splendor. Once you look around you, you will see how enticing the place is.

The course isn’t just a field with a rundown stand; it boasts a modern facility that can accommodate all kinds of visitors, including disabled race fans and corporate clients. There are also spaces designated for coaches and other clients who need to land their helicopter at the course. Roodee is a well-organized racetrack with an outstanding historical backdrop for tending to the needs of thousands of visitors each year.

Also, you can take a moment to admire the famous Lovell Telescope while enjoying the landscape. There is a spectacular gothic stronghold, Cholmondeley also in Malpas Cheshire. Sample the thrill of watching competitive racing, whilst enjoying premium beverages and food across a variety of areas and enclosures. Whether you’re looking to celebrate your weekend get-away or a special occasion with some serious fun, Chester racing always has something to suit. Mingle with the thronging crowds dressed up in beautiful attires, fine hats, eyeglasses, and three-piece suits.

It has beautiful ornamental gardens, rose gardens, Llamas, and Temple Water Garden. Finally, the course can provide for all kinds of meals to suit all budgets and tastes, including alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
