We start with a local departure by coach for our journey directly to the racecourse. Here we have INCLUDED admission to the Festival Zone enclosure, (formerly the Tattersalls). This is the largest and most atmospheric area at Aintree. It has these great features:
- The Aintree Pavilion – a vast covered area with plenty of bars, live music and betting, plus racing on the big screens
- The Viewing Embankment. Here you can take your place to view the final fences of the races
- The Parade Ring and Winner’s enclosure. Here you can view the horses and jockeys before and after the races
- Access to an array of bars
The highlight of the day is the world’s greatest steeplechase – the Grand National. Each of the famous fences evokes memories - Beechers Brook, Valentines and the Chair, to name but a few. An estimated 600 million people will be watching the race on television around the world.
After the racing we take you to our hotel where rooms have been booked with private facilities. Dinner is INCLUDED tonight.
On day two, after breakfast, we take you to Roman Chester. Don’t miss the famous Rows. In the early afternoon we commence our return journey home, arriving back later on.
IMPORTANT NOTE: We cannot accept responsibility for any delays in arrival or failure to arrive at venue. If race cancelled after departure arrangements will proceed and ticket value only will be refunded. There will be no additional compensation. If you cannot gain access to any of the areas of the Festival Zone or they are not open for any reason no compensation will be payable.
