The Chester racecourse is well laid out... Not much protection from the elements unfortunately..which isn't good if you were hoping for sunshine and you get rain!! There are plenty of food establishments.. All reasonably priced.

This was our fourth visit to the races and sadly our last for a while. The whole day is so expensive, tickets and drinks.
