Upon our annual visit to the great Grand National, this year we had to book late and ended up in the Steeplechase Enclosure. Although a 15/20min walk from Aintree Station, it was easy to find along the Melling Road. Great view of the National Race...More

A bitterly cold for the ladies in all their refinery yesterday unfortunately. You cannot do anything about that of course but what was unforgivable was the chronic lack of toilet facilities which led to ladies using the men’s toilets in desperation. The paddock and large...More

Highly disappointing. The weather made it incredibly crowded in any indoor area, which can’t be helped, however lack of space and seating in these areas should be anticipated. This is Britain!! I also wonder when the dress code stopped happening. Jeans and trainers should not...More

It would be best to check on their Website at the end of this year, when their Event Timetable is viewable. It depends where you are headed after Aintree. But it is usually approx 10/10:30pm when it winds down.
