The Grand National weekend at Aintree was an amazing experience, a defiant must-do! The food and drinks were a little over priced but that is what we expected. The racecourse is very impressive and once the stands were filled with people and the races began it was a good atmosphere. We went on the Saturday which was a little bit more relaxed in terms of dress code but still very busy.

I entered a 21k race there and thought it would be good to see the course and run round it. I was half right! The race was fine but the whole place was closed and so they just used the outside parts...so no use of the toilets or cafes except for the outside area which was a shame considering it was pouring with rain and freezing cold.
I would suggest that if they use the course for non horse racing events then they pay a little bit more attention to the needs of the visitors and provide a more positive experience.

Fantastic day at the races for Grand National Day. As expected, the stands were packed. Options for food and drink with the many food/booze vans; would have liked more choice and better value to be honest. Look forward to next year.

What a fantastic day with friends.
Although it was busy it was still comfortable and able to get served relatively quickly.
Security was good and reassuring.
