Aintree Grand National

Arrive in style on the luxurious Northern Belle vintage train. The glamour, thrill and excitement begin the second the train glides into the platform. Liveried stewards await with a red carpet welcome and show you to your plush armchair seats. Intricate marquetry, hand-sewn fabrics and mosaic floors make this beautiful train a moving piece of art.

On the outward journey, enjoy a Bellini brunch, study the form and enjoy the views from your picture window as we journey to Aintree, the home of the world-famous Grand National. On arrival, coaches await to transfer you to the racetrack for an afternoon of high drama and sporting prowess.

After an action-packed day, rejoin the majestic Northern Belle for your very special journey home. A delicious seven-course meal paired with specially selected wine awaits. With champagne in hand, sit back, relax and raise a glass to a very memorable day at the races.

The Grand National, Aintree

A full race program awaits but the pinnacle is the Grand National itself. Since the first National in 1839 this event has grown in popularity and has earned its place in British culture and sporting history. Run over four miles and with 30 jumps, this is the highlight of the meeting. Witness jockeys and their horses take on the challenge of Becher's Brook, The Canal Turn and one of the longest finishing straight in steeplechase racing. While we can’t predict the winner, we can guarantee an unforgettable and fun-filled day.
