Grand National Private Boxes

With a total spectator capacity of 75,000 racegoers, Aintree Racecourse is the perfect home for events as monumental as The Grand National Festival.

Positioned in the northwest of England, Aintree Racecourse near Liverpool provides easy access from the rest of England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and The Republic of Ireland from a conveniently central point within The United Kingdom.

There are five National Hunt meetings that take place at Aintree Racecourse throughout the season every year, starting with The Aintree Afternoon Racing as the first event of the year on the last Sunday every October.

A few weeks after the conclusion of The Aintree Afternoon Racing is The William Hill Autumn Racing at the beginning of November, then a month later on the first Saturday of December is the arrival of The William Hill Becher Chase Meeting.

The next meeting will not be until April but it will be the most highly-anticipated of all – The Grand National Festival. The final meeting of Aintree’s racing season is The Evening Racing which takes place on a warm Spring Friday in the middle of May.

Private Box Packages

Private box packages are the ultimate way to enjoy any of these meetings at Aintree, especially when it comes to races as prestigious as The Grand National. Any extra money set aside for the budget can go a long way in taking your Aintree experience to the next level.

If you’re attending the likes of The Grand National Festival with a party of 16 to 72 guests, private box packages can be of exceptional value when you consider everything that is included in the package.

Pavilion Executive Boxes

Whether you’re hosting important clients, celebrating a milestone birthday or anniversary, or are simply treating yourself to a well-deserved extended Easter break, executive boxes are the most luxurious way to spend your day at Aintree.

Your day with a Pavilion Executive Box package begins with VIP car parking and chauffeur transfers to and from the racecourse, delivering you in executive style to the champagne reception through Aintree’s Premier racecourse entrance.

The finest views of the iconic Grand National racecourse are from the Pavilion Executive Box’s very own private balcony, which will be your base for the day observing the high-octane horse racing action as it unfolds on Aintree’s world-class racetrack.

An exemplary four-course lunch will be served in the early afternoon, accompanied by selected wines and tempting amuse-bouche. If your tiple is an alternative choice to these selected wines, the complimentary bar that you have access to throughout your stay will pour your preference.

Keep your complimentary racecard and racing newspaper handy for when the Jockey Club host and betting tipster gives his or her thoughts on each race before they take place, giving you the best opportunity to make your day at Aintree a profitable one. The private tote betting service makes this as simple as it should be.
