Witness exhilarating fixtures at Aintree Racecourse
Horseracing has been held at Aintree Racecourse since the early 19th century, with the steeplechase formally introduced in 1836. As the home of the Grand National, the name of the course is well known across Britain and beyond, and strikes fear into the heart of any professional jockey. With infamous obstacles such as Becher's Brook, The Chair and Foinavon, the sixteen-fence race is demanding in terms of technique, stamina and speed, and thus incredibly exciting for spectators to watch. Attendance at Aintree Racecourse during the Grand National weekend in April is always incredibly high, and the atmosphere absolutely electrifying on the all-important Saturday. Yet other meetings such as the Becher Chase Day or the Aintree Community Race Day are also incredibly popular, and give you the chance to see exciting races without quite the same amount of tension in the air. Coming out of season? Tickets for Aintree Racecourse include unique concerts, festivals and even the opportunity to play a round of golf on the famous course.
Feel the thrill of a day at Aintree Racecourse
As with other courses like Cheltenham Racecourse or Goodwood Racecourse, there is no official dress code for Aintree Racecourse.

The five main stands at Aintree Racecourse offer various hospitality options, while you can also get up close to the action with a trackside spot or enjoy the sociable atmosphere of the Red Rum Garden. While it's difficult to pick the best stand at Aintree Racecourse, each of them offers an unparalleled view of a different section of the course, the Princess Royal Stand is typically the most popular for its view of the exciting final 200m and location between the Chair and the Water Jump.
