Viewing areas and other facilities for disabled guests.
Aintree Racecourse is committed to making the course grounds available to as many people as possible meeting the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act and makes every effort to ensure its communications and facilities are accessible to those with special needs, including those with visual, hearing, cognitive and motor impairments.
With the introduction of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) in October 2005, Aintree Racecourse, in common with all premises offering access to the Public in England and Wales, assumed a mandatory obligation to provide easy access to all parts of its premises for people with Disabilities, wherever reasonably practicable. The Act recognizes, however, that full access is not always reasonably achievable in older existing buildings, and therefore states that in these cases people with disabilities should be able to gain easy access into the premises and that the services they require should be made available to them in close proximity to their entry point.
Aintree Racecourse comprises an interlinked grouping of multi-storey buildings on one site, some updated as recently as 2008 and with significant changes in floor levels both between and within individual buildings.
To meet the requirements of the legislation, we have made substantial practicable changes to our facilities that include:
Aintree Racecourse is committed to improving access and movement through the buildings for people with physical, sensory and psychological disabilities and impairments through many ongoing upgrading and improvement programmes.

Lowered services counters are available in the The Red Rum Bar, Hedgehunter Bar, Tattersalls, Stands and in the Tote. Induction Loops are available in all stands on the racecourse.
