This was a well organised race meet with lots of general parking available, plenty of places to eat and drink and as expected, a wide variety of bookmakers to take your bets. This was a fun day out.

The Grand National weekend at Aintree was an amazing experience, a defiant must-do! The food and drinks were a little over priced but that is what we expected. The racecourse is very impressive and once the stands were filled with people and the races began...More

Fantastic day at the races for Grand National Day. As expected, the stands were packed. Options for food and drink with the many food/booze vans; would have liked more choice and better value to be honest. Look forward to next year.

What a fantastic day with friends. Although it was busy it was still comfortable and able to get served relatively quickly. Security was good and reassuring.

Once you walk out of the back of the stand (toward the track and bookies) you can roam around freely.

It would be best to check on their Website at the end of this year, when their Event Timetable is viewable. It depends where you are headed after Aintree. But it is usually approx 10/10:30pm when it winds down.
