Minibus And Driver To Chester Racecourse

 

It’s a well known fact that The Chester Races are part of northern culture. A racecourse that has hosted racing ever since February 9th 1539 and to this day still remains the oldest racecourse in the  Britain. Back then it was sanctioned by Henry Gee, the Lord Mayor of Chester who incidentally gave rise to the “Gee Gees” nickname that some avid goers and fans refer to the sport as. Nowadays the races are a chance to let your glamour and lavish side out, a chance to let your cash flow as freely as the champagne.

The Three Day May Festival.

This is the big occasion that kick starts the racing season. Consisting of three days, City Day, Chester Cup Day and of course, the ever glamourous Ladies Day. This is not to be mistaken for the Ladies Evening, encompassing a Best Dressed Lady competition allowing Ladies the chance to win prizes of up to £1000, a perfect excuse to get dressed up and try to win big.

Dress codes for the races enable everyone to dress up spectacularly for the event. There are no jeans or trainers allowed so the more glamourous the better. Surrounding restaurants and other hospitality venues also adhere closely to the “Smartly dressed” code, so there is an even bigger reason to go out, flash the cash and treat yourself to some lavish clothing. The men do not get out of

looking smart either: a shirt collar, jacket and tie are must haves at the races. We haven’t mentioned the hats yet! They aren’t part of the dress code so you won’t be refused entry without one, but you also shouldn’t be refused entry if you do decide to wear one, and hats are a big marquee point of the races, so you shouldn’t hesitate to wear one if you want to.

Let’s get to the important stuff: The money. Most vendors take a minimum bet of £5 however, Tote can and will take £2 bets. They even allow you to buy vouchers using your credit card just in case you’ve been a little too unlucky and your cash has fluttered on by quicker than the horses do.

We at Manchester Minibus strongly recommend purchasing a race card for the day, this allows you to keep track of the day’s events and eases the pressure on first time goers in understanding the procedures.

Chester races have three incredible grandstands to enjoy the action from. The action is enjoyed across fourteen days of races, all spaced out from May through to September 28th and noteworthy races that take place including Epsom Derby trails. Many other events take place at the “Roodee” Racecourse. Including Polo Games and vintage fairs.

No mater what your reason for visiting, let Manchester Minibus take care of your travel arrangements, enjoy a drink, enjoy the weather, enjoy the races. Forget about the traffic, forget about parking and forget about the car. We’ve got you covered.
