Leaving the local area in the morning we'll journey to our hotel. Arriving in the late afternoon you'll be free to rest and relax ready for tomorrow's excitement.
After breakfast, we'll head to Aintree. Soak up the incomparable atmosphere of the home of the 'World's Greatest Steeplechase', and enjoy a full card of thrilling racing as well as the afternoon's highlight - the spectacular running of the 2017 Randox Health Grand National.
Place your bets, cheer on your favourites and perhaps enjoy an early dinner before we transfer to your overnight hotel in the Manchester area for a good night's rest.
After a full English breakfast, we'll begin our journey home. En route we'll visit the walled city of Chester, where you'll be able to do some sightseeing and perhaps some shopping, before we continue homewards in the early afternoon. We'll arrive back in the local area by late evening.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
