Grand National Tickets 

Each April, the John Smith’s Grand National is not only the highlight of the racing season but also one of the biggest social events in the British calendar. Tickets and grandstand badges go on general sale early in the year, and sell-outs are quite common. Many visitors take advantage of special hospitality packages that include dining as well as entry to the viewing enclosures, of which there are many.

Steeplechase Enclosure – This outdoor section is open only on John Smith`s Grand National Day, offering prime viewing of the Grand National Course’s first fences. Seating is unreserved, the dress code is relaxed, and the atmosphere is special. Located here are bars, catering, betting facilities, big screen viewing, and live entertainment. Entry costs £19 per adult; children are admitted free of charge.

Tattersalls Enclosure – As the largest of the Aintree enclosures, the Tattersalls offers access to Parade Ring and Winner’s Enclosure viewing. Ticket holders may also access the café style bars of the Red Rum lawn or the Irish Bar and enjoy live music in the Aintree Pavilion. Also available is tote betting and big screen viewing, while the Aintree mound overlooks the closing stages of every race. Tickets cost from £21 to £43 for adults and up to £14 for children, depending on the day selected. Group discounts can be arranged here, too.

West Tip Seats – Much like the Tattersalls Enclosure but with covered seats, this area has great views of the home straight and the final few fences. There is a private bar and all of the facilities of the Tattersalls may be accessed. Ticket prices start at £24 for adults and sell out quickly.

Grandstand Badges – A choice of reserved seats or roof/terrace viewing is offered in the grandstands overlooking all races. Badges here give access to designated bars for every grandstand, tote betting facilities within each enclosure, big screen viewing, and viewing of the Parade Ring and Winner’s Enclosure. Choose from among the Princess Royal Grandstand, the County Grandstand, the Queen Mother Grandstand, or the Earl of Derby and Lord Sefton Grandstands, each of which have uncovered stand roofs. Adult ticket prices range from £40 to £50 and up, depending on the seating and day selected.

VIP Lounges – Limited in capacity but high in demand, the Winner’s Bar and the Platinum County Lounge are exclusive racecourse enclosures. The former, which was once Aintree’s Weighing Room, offers bar seats plus reserved Princess Royal Grandstand seats, while the latter comes with fully covered reserved seating overlooking the Grand National course’s famous water jump. Package extras at either venue include finger food, a complimentary race card, and a tipster to serve as a guide to the day’s racing. Additional food and drinks can be purchased from the highbrow concessions. Tickets start at £74 and range as high as £206 per person, depending on the seating and day selected.

When making Grand National ticket reservations, certain terms and conditions apply, such as a £1 booking fee for all online bookings and a £2 booking fee for those made at the Aintree racecourse or via the official telephone ticketing line. Grandstand badges are strictly limited to a maximum of ten per customer.

All other customers purchasing tickets online or via the call centre will be automatically enrolled in the Rewards4Racing loyalty programme free of charge, unless they otherwise indicate a desire to opt out.
