Liverpool's Day, formerly Grand National Thursday, has become an ever popular choice for racing fans and couples alike. Enjoy a relaxed raceday experience with a mix of high quality racing and easy-going entertainment. Take the opportunity to immerse yourself within this iconic event and discover one of the region’s best kept secrets.


Liverpool has been transformed over the past decade and the Randox Health Grand National Festival is one of the major events at the heart of the city’s regeneration strategy. The event is watched in over 100 different countries by hundreds of millions of people so it’s also a great opportunity to promote the city as a destination to a national and international audience.

 

Most importantly, it is the people of Liverpool who make the event and create the amazing friendly atmosphere that makes the Randox Health Grand National Festival so unique. Thursday at the Aintree Grand National Festival is Liverpool’s Day - a tribute to the city and the people who make it what it is today.
