Overview
More
Bangor on Dee is a left handed jumps racecourse set in glorious countryside and overlooked by the Welsh hills. Bangor has a unique character, amplified by the fact that it is the only Racecourse in the country that doesn't have a grandstand! The first steeplechase meeting took place at Bangor on 25th February 1859 over much the same course as that on which the races are held today. 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 at Chester - the Holiday Inn Express, restaurants 1539 and The White Horse at the Chester site and Commonhall Social in the city of Chester. The company also provide external catering services for third party events.

We frequently go to race meetings and always enjoy a visit to Bangor as it is a small and friendly course where you can feel at home and not feel under dressed!

Made the most of the sunshine and took a picnic and parked up on the bank overlooking the course. Only £10 per person to get in (£7 in advance) was great value. We had our dog with us so we weren't able to upgrade to...More
