The Grand National Festival

Aintree Racecourse is known to millions worldwide as the home of the John Smith’s Grand National – The World’s Greatest Steeplechase.  Our exciting marquee facility, hosted by Aintree legend Bob Champion, is located right next to the Parade Ring affording guests the finest views of the horses anywhere on the racecourse.

The Bob Champion Suite
This superb glass-fronted marquee is located adjacent to the Parade Ring and alongside the Red Rum statue, providing the very best value at the Grand National.  Guests will view the racing itself from the raised terrace in front of the County Stand, overlooking the finish line of the Grand National. 

On arrival, guests will receive morning coffee and biscuits and a glass of Bucks Fizz followed by a three course hot luncheon. During lunch Bob Champion will review the racecard and give his expert betting tips. At the conclusion of the Grand National, Afternoon Tea will be served.

Also included is a complimentary bar of wines, draft beers & soft drinks which is served to your guests by our hostesses.
