The Nation’s favourite race, The Grand National, takes place at the glorious Aintree Racecourse on the outskirts of the incredible city of Liverpool every year in April. It was disappointing that many of us were unable to attend this year’s race where Rachael Blackmore made history being the first female jockey to win the race on Henry de Bromhead trained Minella Times. Many magical moments have taken place at this fantastic three day festival and there is no doubt that next year will have plenty more stories to tell.
This is the Nation’s favourite race and for very good reason. This is one of the best Jumps racing festivals of the season taking place over three days in April and always seems to be blessed with some warm spring sunshine. Thursday is known as Liverpool’s Day and hosts four Grade 1 races as well as the Foxhunter’s Chase, so plenty of fantastic racing action to get your teeth stuck into. Friday is none other than Ladies D
ay and the ladies really do come out on mass in all of their finery! It really is something to admire. Then, Saturday, the one everyone eagerly awaits, Grand National Day.
With many customers rolling over bookings from this year, availability is extremely limited so don’t miss your chance to be a part of the Nation’s favourite race for another year running and book now to avoid disappointment.
Here is an outline of some of the best places to stay to get the best experience of the Grand National 2022.
