Chester Race Company has a proactive attitude to catering for disabled racegoers. Chester Racecourse is DDI compliant, however, owing to the age of some of the grandstands, suitability does vary.

For racegoers who are confined to a wheelchair, parking can be arranged in the disabled parking bays at the Holiday Inn Express, which is located next to the racecourse. Other disabled patrons can park in the disabled spaces near the paddock.

There is wheelchair route throughout the racecourse. If you require assistance gaining access to the racecourse this can be sought at the Disabled Reception based in the Holiday Inn Express Car Park. Lifts are available in the County, Leverhulme and Tattersalls Grandstands.

Designated viewing areas have been established in the Paddock area, plus the County, Tattersalls and Dee enclosures. The Paddock viewing platform gives particularly good views of the track and winning post.

Specialist toilet facilities are available in all racecourse enclosures.

Dispensations are available on ticket prices for carers, please contact the Box Office for more detail.

Should you have access requirements, it is advisable to call the Box Office on 01244 304 600 or email  ahead of your visit.

Alternatively, a full breakdown of accessibility information can be viewed online at the Disabled Go website here.
