Aintree Racecourse

Added to planner Add to planner

Aintree is one of the world’s most famous racecourses with over two miles of luscious green racetrack.

Racing doesn’t happen every day, so when it does, it’s always a special occasion, especially at Aintree. As well as the famous three day Grand National festival in April, race meetings throughout are often combined with live performances from fantastic artists.

Race Dates for 2016

  • Sunday 23rd October – Old Roan Chase Day
  • Saturday 5th November – Afternoon Racing
  • Saturday 3rd December – Becher Chase Day

A strengthened train service will often run on Aintree Race days and a special timetable is put in place for the annual three day Grand National festival. Add Aintree Racecourse or one of the Race Day events to your Planner to quickly get train times from your nearest station.
