Avoid Chester Vase as the busiest day of the year. A great racing venue.

Always worth a visit on race day if only to see the spiffs in their suits and the girls with ridiculous shoes and too much flesh hanging out. And then there's the horses!!

This is a lovely racecourse really close to Chester town centre, they also let you take your own food and drinks in which is good as it doesn't work out as an expensive day out!

Lets put it this way,i gave up counting at 85 when looking at the cue for the toilet,seriously under staffed and a potential disaster.By far the worst ground i have ever been too!People being forced to urinate up walls because of the cues,if you drink (which 99%) of people do then this course isnt for you,also to finish 40+ people were removed from the stairway and told to sit on a very steep embankment which was wet!Sorry be will not return.
