A Guide to Liverpool - Grand National Weekend
With it’s reputation as a party city and a diverse nightlife, Liverpool is the perfect place for a hen weekend. There is no better time to visit than the weekend of the Grand National, when the city is most alive!
If you’re travelling from further afield, direct trains from most major cities come into Liverpool Lime Street, located in the city centre. To get to the racecourse, take a train from Liverpool Central Station to Aintree Station. Trains run every 10 minutes and the journey takes around 20 minutes,d the racecourse is across the road from Aintree Station. Brimming with cocktail bars, for sophistication head to Castle Street Townhouse, Palm Sugar or the Old Blind School. Smugglers Cove, Aloha and The Peacock are also worth a visit. Quirky alternatives can be found at Ex Directory, where a secret entrance is located in a telephone box, and cocktails are served in mini baths, teacups and discoballs. Oh Me Oh My is a rooftop bar overlooking the river Mersey and directly in front of the Liver building.
