I've been to the Grand National on many occasions and although enjoyable can get very busy. This meeting is much less busy and easy to move about. I was on a VIP Racing UK visit which was situated in the Hedgehunter Bar situated underneath the Royal Derby Stand.

Visited with my wife for a horse show. 1st class facilities for this type of event. Stabling, arena , hook up et all VG. Best place to stay would be the PI next door. Really made me want to visit on a big race day.

Enjoyed our day at the races. Plenty to do as it was countryside day. Enjoyed the "lamb national" in particular. Good to be able to get up close to the racing and winners enclosure. Food a bit pricey but that's normal at these events. Plenty of parking and not too bad to get in and out of.

Visited the course on the Family Countryside Raceday. I have been to Aintree several times in the past although it is the first time I have been to this particular meeting. Excellent racing and plenty attractions to keep younger family members occupied.
