Grand National Day

 

This is the reason why many people across the globe stop for just over 8 minutes; the streets of Liverpool and beyond remain quiet, waiting and watching. Who will win – it could be any one of the 40 runners and riders that line up to face the ultimate challenge in Jumps racing.

 

Steeped in history and loved by many, The Grand National is a display of endeavour, ability, talent and true determination. You will witness nothing like this at any other sporting event. Immerse yourself with thousands of others on the Aintree turf and cheer on your favourite.
