Get your Friday fix and start the weekend right

Our Friday fixtures often take on a life of their own, and enjoy a completely different identity compared to Saturday fixtures here on the Roodee. This meeting provides the perfect opportunity for you start a long weekend the right way, and make the most of the new Summer weather. As the days get longer and the evenings get lighter, the world’s oldest racecourse provides a picturesque and scenic surrounding for you and your friends, family and loved ones to relax and have fun.

Our Champagne Garden enclosure only opened last year, but has already been a smash-hit with racegoers with tickets selling out weeks ahead of race days. Or maybe you’d prefer the Winning Post. At the heart of the action and providing unrivaled track side viewing, this enclosure offers a lively and electric vibe for its guests. Chester Racecourse is also known for its exceptional hospitality packages. Ranging from Restaurant 1539, offering a luxe experience with an unbeatable view, to The White Horse providing a warm and rustic atmosphere, every taste is accounted for.

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

Please note that all tickets will be subject to a £1.25 per ticket administration fee.
