Guide to Chester
Chester is one of Britain’s great heritage locations and has over 2000 years of history and is the most complete walled City in Britain. The streets are very compact thanks to the surviving Roman grid pattern, making it very easy to get around the whole town easily on foot, ensuring you take in the Tudor style architecture, the sights on the River Dee and the vast array of restaurants and bars.

Chester is a relatively small city and is therefore easy to walk around. Its mainly pedestrianised medieval centre, the River Dee and City Walls are all within walking distance and are great spots to visit. Its main train station is at the North side of the city and has a plethora of black cabs waiting outside, otherwise you can use the main taxi company KingKabs for pre-booked trips.
Here are a few tips that might help you during your party or group event in Chester.
- Chester Races are staged over the summer months with fixtures taking place between May and September. During this ‘season’, Chester has races each month and its fixtures are firmly ingrained on the City's social calendar.
- Getting a group of friends together for racing days can save you money.
- On race days, road closures around the racecourse are normal to allow pedestrians safe entry to and exit from the racecourse. 1 and a half hour before racing.
