Chester Racecourse

Chester Racecourse

Chester Race Company is a dynamic and rapidly expanding organisation. The company's vision is that it becomes synonymous in people's psyche as a first option in deciding what to do in their "leisure" time. The extensive "what's on" list is grown season on season with racing as its core product offering. The Racecourse now also offers: polo, horse show, concerts, fine dining, theatre box office, the circus etc. In the medium term we continue to work towards guaranteeing that all events that take place at Chester & Bangor-on-Dee Racecourses are all organized to the same exacting standards and provide visitors to the event of their choice with a 1st class "experience". The Chester Race Company Limited ["CRCL"] has been established since 1892. In 2002, CRCL acquired Bangor on Dee racecourse and in 2003, the Express Holiday Inn Hotel at Chester Racecourse franchise.

The Zoo is internationally known for its innovative enclosure designs, which in the early years were achieved in an austere economic climate, for its many breeding successes and its involvement in co-operative breeding programmes. In 2004 visitor attendance was approximately 1,087,000 (not including the under 3's), the Zoo continues to play important roles in developing conservation outreach, research, education and marketing strategies.
