Aintree Racecourse, Ormskirk Road, Liverpool, Merseyside L9 5AS. Tel: 0151 523 3600

AINTREE races is home to the world’s greatest steeplechase, the Randox Health Grand National. The racecourse is like no other track in the world. This is especially because it is situated in the middle of a residential area and near industrial estates. The Grand National is an institution and, consequently, remains THE most thrilling sporting spectacle. As a result, huge crowds attend its three-day April festival, while Ladies’ Day is synonymous with glamour. It is a wonderful day out (so don’t believe the Daily Mail). The opening day of the National meeting on the Thursday of the Aintree races April festival is often the best in terms of quality. In addition, it is certainly the quieter of the three days. Furthermore, the Becher Chase meeting in December maybe a little more low key but is most noteworthy for the Becher Chase itself over the big fences. This is a major trial for the National itself while Aintree races does host other meetings in the spring and summer.
