Leaving the local area in the morning, journey to Aintree. Soak up the incomparable atmosphere of the home of the 'World's Greatest Steeplechase', place your bets and cheer on your favourites. You'll enjoy a full card of thrilling racing as well as the afternoon's highlight - the spectacular running of the 2015 Crabbie's Grand National.
After an exciting day, return to the coach for the transfer to your overnight hotel in the Manchester area.
After a full English breakfast we'll begin the journey home, stopping en route to visit the walled city of Chester. Spend some time sightseeing or exploring the shops, then reboard the coach to continue your journey, arriving back at your original departure point by mid to late evening.
Your Aintree admission
Open on The Crabbie's 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).
