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. Many hotels are already booked up on Saturday night; don’t miss your chance to be a part of the Nation’s favourite race for another year running, book now to avoid disappointment.
Over the past few weeks, we have added new hotel experiences which are bound to sell out quickly. Here are some of our favourite options on offer which allow you to have an exceptional experience at the Grand National.
For those wishing to witness world-class racing on Thursday and the celebration of a lifetime on Friday, you are in luck! We still have a range of hotels with remaining rooms.

- Morning breakfast
- Complimentary drink upon arrival
- Return racecourse transfers
