North West Area Hotel 

You will be staying in a good hotel in the North West, such as the Holiday Inn Warrington or the Quality Hotel, Wigan. All rooms used will have private facilities, TV, radios and telephones, and the hotels will have good bar and restaurant facilities.

Further Information

Your Aintree admission

Open on The Randox Health Grand National day only, the Steeplechase Enclosure provides prime viewing of the first fences of the Grand National Course, unreserved seating and - with a relaxed dress code - offers a unique outdoor Grand National experience. With its own bars, catering, betting facilities, big screen viewing and live entertainment, the enclosure has an atmosphere all of its own.

Tattersalls enclosure upgrade

Tattersalls was greatly enhanced in 2007 with the completion of the new Aintree Pavilion. A Tattersalls ticket entitles you to use the bar and catering areas within the Chair Pavilion, the Irish Bar in the Princess Royal Stand, and to see the parade ring and winner's enclosure.

Coach seating arrangements

Your Tour Manager will have allocated seats for you on the main coach in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible, and will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach.)

Joining your holiday

Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.

Meal arrangements

Where meals are not included, your Tour Manager will ensure there are suitable stops made for you to purchase and enjoy lunch and/or dinner each day.

Triple rooms

The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Merthyr Tydfil Friends
Newmarket Holidays need to explain the itinerary before the trip is booked, we were traveling from 8.45am to 17.40. It took over an hour for us to travel into Stroud when it would have been better to shuttle the customers to the bus. The tour rep was not the correct person for the Grand National she did not know enough about the actual day. The hotel was very sub standard the breakfast very poor. Actual day at the races was not to bad but again if explained before the trip where the bus was going to park we would have never gone. This party has been to the National numerous occasions but this was the worst experience so far. Coming home wee were on the coach for 40 mins when we were told we were going to spend 3.30 mins in Chester. I understand that was part of the excursion but at no time was it explained we would be in Chester for over 3 hours & then not reach our destinations until 22.00 if all went well, this is unacceptable & l have written to the ombudsman for advice. The tour rep was in appropriately dressed a women of her age should never be allowed to wear a black thong with cream trousers

Would have enjoyed more if hotel location hand't been changed last minute which left us having to travel 60 miles to racecourse instead of 17.

This was our first experience of a coach holiday and overall we enjoyed it.

So pleased we experienced the Grand National but would not go again. A great atmosphere and well organised by the racecourse but a very long day without the opportunity to sit down even though we upgraded to Tattersalls.

Devon Friends
The Grand National is a great experience, have Newmarket ever considered doing 2 days of racing (Friday&Saturday) instead of the Saturday. Use the Tattersalls side rather than the steeplechase as you don't see much of the racing other than on screen. The visit to Chester on the Sunday was very good too.

Single traveller
Coach transfers to and from the hotel, Aintree and Chester were excellent. We stayed at the Holiday Inn in the centre of Preston with bars and restaurants in easy walking distance. All fellow travellers were very pleasant. I was pleased I'd upgraded to the Tattersalls enclosure: however, this came with very limited seating. If I came again, I'd upgrade to one of the stands, not an inexpensive option! The weather was unfortunately wet but this did not dampen anyone's spirit. A great, intensive 3-day holiday!

Ely Couple
Good trip didn't like the racing two many people crammed into small space when it rained,
they didn't have enough toilets, couldn't get to the totes & Bars during racing needed more tents.
