The Grand National – simply the most famous horse race in the world!

Held over three days, whichever days you choose to attend Aintree is one of the most atmospheric sporting venues in the world.

Thursday – Grand Opening Day is the curtain raiser for the greatest show on earth. Boasting a feast of world class racing, including four Grade One contests, the world’s best runners and risers reconvene for one of the most challenging and thrilling events on the sporting calendar.

Friday – Ladies Day brings a touch of glamour to the Grand National Festival with the day’s big feature races including The Topham Steeple Chase and Melling Steeple Chase on an exciting adrenaline fuelled racecard.

Saturday  – From the legendary triple-winning success of Red Rum to Leighton Aspell’s remarkable back to back victories on 25 – 1 chances Pineau de Re and Many Clouds in 2014 and 2015, each year the Grand National demonstrates that thrilling combination of human endeavor and equine fortitude.

Once again the world will come to a standstill when the high drama at fences such as The Chair, Becher’s Brook, Canal Turn and Valentines is watched by a phenomenal 600 million people live on TV but nothing compares to being on-course, making an occasion your guests will remember for a lifetime.
