Aintree Racecourse

The UK’s Top Horse Racing Venue

Located in Aintree, Liverpool this renowned course is a major name in the sporting world. Most popular for annually holding the world’s most famous steeplechase the Grand National. Aintree is the ideal setting to enjoy world class sporting events.

The racecourse is most certainly a staple piece within the horse racing world thanks to its affiliation with The Jockey Club; the UK giants. Although Aintree Racecourse has played host to other major events over the years the Grand National is most definitely the highlight.

You can witness world-class jump racing action at one of the greatest National Hunt courses year on year. The electric atmosphere that comes hand in hand with an important race day can be felt throughout Liverpool.

With steeplechasing first introduced at Aintree in 1836, the Grand National is now recognised as the world’s greatest steeplechase. The actual course is considered to be one of the hardest to complete. With daunting fences to tackle even the most accomplished have their work cut out. Renowned fences include The Chair, Foinavon and Becher’s Brook. All of which hold their own unique story. Unlike other British National Hunt courses, all fences are covered with spruce sourced from the Lake District.
