This year's Grand National is destined to be special; it will be packed to the rafters and filled with life for the first time in what feels like an eternity. Taking place in April at Aintree Racecourse, Liverpool, this experience will be one which you cannot miss.

Thursday is known as Liverpool’s Day and hosts some incredible racing. With four Grade 1 races on display, as well as the Foxhunter's Chase, this is a day that racing fanatics cannot afford to miss. Friday is none other than Ladies Day. It really is an experience both on and off the course; prepare to dress up in your finest attire, one of the best parties in Liverpool awaits. And of course, the three-day festival ends with the day that everyone has been waiting for, Grand National Day.
