The racecourse also hosts 5 racedays, outside the Crabbie's Grand National Festival, as well as conference and event for up to 3000 delegates.

It is a beautiful, world class race course, which holds a couple of race meetings throughout the year. By far the most important is The Grand National Festival, 3 days of the finest steeplechasing in the world over a very challenging course of jumps. The... More

Had a great night at the races, the Kaiser Chiefs were on and as always they gave a fantastic performance. The sound wasn't quite as good as some of the other racecourses I have been to but nonetheless it was still really good. Although it was by no means packed to the hilt the bars were extremely busy and we... More

Having been to York and Newbury Races previously, I can honestly say that Aintree is the best. We had tickets for the Festival Zone, which had plenty of well organised bars... More

Having never been to a big horse racing meeting, I didn't know what to expect but this was glorious. The beautifully sunny weather helped of course but that aside, everything was well organised, our seats in West Tip provided a great view and shade (I booked them in case of rain but the shelter worked just as well as Sun...

This was my 39th trip to the Aintree Grand National and despite not backing a winner, it was a truly superb day.The weather was positively hot and as I was in the Steeplechase enclosure, I was able to spend plenty of time stretched out on the grass soaking in the rays. Security was quite tight this year and those people... More
