This year's Grand National is destined to be special; it will be packed to the rafters and filled with life for the first time in what feels like an eternity. Taking place in April at Aintree Racecourse, Liverpool, this experience will be one which you cannot miss. We missed being able to witness Rachel Blackmore make history as the first female jockey to win the race, but we are nonetheless optimistic that this year's race will be just as memorable.
The Grand National certainly lives up to the hype and is truly a sight to behold. Taking place over three days in April, and seemingly always blessed with some sunshine, this is one of the best Jumps racing festivals of the season. Thursday is known as Liverpool’s Day and hosts some incredible racing. With four Grade 1 races on display, as well as the Foxhunter's Chase, this is a day that racing fanatics cannot afford to miss. Friday is none other than Ladies Day. It really is an experience both on and off the course; prepare to dress up in your finest attire, one of the best parties in Liverpool awaits. And of course, the three-day festival ends with the day that everyone has been waiting for, Grand National Day.
With many customers rolling over bookings from this year, availability is extremely limited; don’t miss your chance to be a part of the Nation’s favourite race for another year running, book now to avoid disappointment. At this moment in time, the only tickets available are for the Festival Zone with more tickets to release for other enclosures.
The Festival Zone at Aintree plays host to great live music and entertainment, as well as stunning views of the Parade Ring. If attending the Grand National in a large group, this enclosure is the way to go. Whether you wish to have drinks in the Irish Bar, visit Red Rum Garden or simply bask in the atmosphere of what is Britains most popular race, we can’t think of a better place to do it.
Looking for an easygoing, lively enclosure? This relaxed dress-code enclosure just might be what you are looking for! The Steeplechase Enclosure has its own food, drink and betting facilities and offers prime viewing of the first fences of the Grand National Course. There are seating options available as well however these are unreserved. This enclosure is home to one of the longest bars in Europe at 100 metres, something that large groups would love to know.
If it’s coming down to the wire and money is on the line, there is nowhere you would rather be than the West Tip Seats. Fantastic views of the home straight as well as the final fences on the course will leave you on the edge of your seat right till the very end.
