Aintree racecourse can be found within a twenty minute drive of the Sunnyside Guesthouse in Southport.
Aintree racecourse is home to the world’s most televised sporting event, the John Smiths Grand National. As well as being known as a racecourse it is also used as a location for conferences, exhibitions and high profile meetings.
The John Smiths Grand National will be held between Thursday the 13th and Saturday the 15th April 2023.
The racecourse has recently been subject to a 35 million pound makeover in order to increase the facilities on offer throughout the year. As a result there are two new grandstands and a banqueting facility holding up to 750 people.
