About Us

Chester Race Company Ltd is a dynamic, constantly evolving and growing organisation.  The company is responsible for two racecourses and all catering and conference facilities at Bangor on Dee and Chester, along with an on course hotel and restaurant at the Chester site.   The company also provide external catering services for third party events.  

Chester is the oldest racecourse in the UK and possibly the world, the first recorded race was held on February 9th 1539.  Over £10m has been invested in the course over recent years including the development of the Pavilion facility, Restaurant 1539 and Paddock redevelopment.

The average race day attendance for 2011 was 23,500, the highest attendance was 43,000 for the Sunday Funday event in August.  Saturday race meetings bring an additional £1.2m tourism revenue for Chester in terms of hotel room bookings and spend in bars, restaurants and retail outlets.  The racecourse employs approx. 85 full time staff and over 1,000 part-time on a race day.

Chester Race Company aims to become the leading sports/leisure and  corporate venue in the North West through perpetual innovation and succession planning. Chester Race Company’s intention is to reduce the impact on the environment through a program of continuous improvement in which we will assess the current environmental impacts  of the business, including new projects, and set specific base line targets for the future.
