There's nowhere quite like Aintree Racecourse, home of the world famous Randox Health Grand National. Steeped in history, drama, triumph and achievement, it is simply unique. The racecourse also hosts 5 racedays, outside the Randox Health National Festival, as well as conference and event for up to 3000 delegates.

Really helpful and kind staff. Plenty of bar areas at the back of the course (don't even bother with the bars inside). Brilliant value for money, races and Jess Glynne, Fab!!

A group of us visited for the races on a Friday night. Quiet on arrival but soon filled up to create a good atmosphere. Kaiser chiefs followed straight after the races and were very entertaining.
