Local Attractions

Chester Racecourse

Chester is the oldest racecourse in the UK and possibly the world, the first recorded race was held on February 9th 1539. Over £10m has been invested in the course over recent years including the development of the Pavilion facility, Restaurant 1539 and Paddock redevelopment.

There are few more thrilling sights in British Racing than the horses thundering into the final furlong at Chester.

Cheshire Polo Club

The present Cheshire Polo Club dates from 1952 but it is the successor to a number of clubs that have played in the North West for over a hundred years. The earliest of these was the Manchester Polo Club that can rightly claim to be the oldest club in England, after the game had been brought to this country from India in the 1860’s.

Mount Pleasant Gardens, Yeld Lane, Kelsall

Set in the glorious heart of the rolling Cheshire Countryside, near to Delamere Forest and only 15 minutes from the centre of Chester, Mount Pleasant Gardens offers the ideal opportunity to meander through some of the finest displays of traditional mixed gardens including ponds with year round interest.

The gardens boast thousands of varieties of plants and are a riot of colour throughout the summer season.

The tiered garden cascades down a gently sloping hillside providing outstanding views over the Cheshire Plain.

Cheshire Fishing

We are situated near the village of Tattenhall, at the foot of the beautiful Peckforton Hills, with easy access to Chester, Manchester, Merseyside and motorways.

There are five spring-fed lakes and pools set in beautiful open countryside with views of Beeston Castle and the Cheshire Plain. The lakes are generously stocked two to three times weekly with hard-fighting rainbow trout from llb 8oz to 27lb.

The pools are well-stocked with common, mirror, crucian and ghost carp, roach, bream, tench, golden tench, barbel, rudd, perch, chub and golden orfe.

Delamere Forest Golf Club

Founded in 1910 and designed by the renowned architect Herbert Fowler, Delamere Forest Golf Club is widely regarded as one of the best heathland golf courses in England. Situated in the heart of rural Cheshire but with easy access, Delamere is often described as a ‘hidden gem’.

Its rolling fairways are interspersed with heather and gorse, crowned by fast, subtle greens which are typical of Fowler’s early designs.

As a result the course offers a fair but tough challenge to visitors and members alike.

Eaton Golf Club

Our course was designed by Donald Steel, the celebrated golf architect, as an enjoyable challenge for players of all abilities.

Located some four miles from the historic city of Chester and with views of Cheshire and North Wales, Eaton Golf Club offers a wide range of high quality facilities for members and the many visitors who take part in open tournaments, society events and charity days.

Oulton Park Race Circuit

Widely acknowledged as the most picturesque race circuit in the country, Oulton Park is recognised as much for its stunning surroundings as the spectacular racing that takes place on its hallowed tarmac.

Voted the best UK circuit by BSB fans in 2007, Oulton Park features rapidly changing gradients and blind crests, and presents a supreme challenge to riders.

Spectators can enjoy fantastic views of the action, with the outside of Knickerbrook in particular a favourite of the crowds.

Flintshire Flying School

Flintshire Flying School is based in the north-east, on the border between England and Wales, at Chester Hawarden Airport (EGNR).

Flintshire Flying School is a private flight training school offering training from the Private Pilot Licence to Night Qualifications and Instrument Ratings.

The school has been successfully training students since 2008 and uses a fleet of purpose built training aircraft, primarily Piper Tomahawks.
