Spectator Guide

Where to go and what to see

Do you want to be close to the Winning Post, as the victorious horse and jockey cross the line? Or would you rather have easy access to the Red Rum Lawn and take in the entertainment? Pick your favourite spot!

The Winners' Enclosure

The Winners' Enclosure

The best place to soak up the excitement and to savour the exhilaration of victory. This is where the winning horses are reunited with their owners and where the trophies are presented.

The Parade Ring

The Parade Ring

This is where the horses and riders parade before each race. It's your opportunity to get a good look at the runners before you place your bets.

Trackside

Trackside

Nothing can beat the excitement of watching the race from the rails – the flashing colours and thundering hooves as the field races by is a moment to savour, especially if you can get near the finish line.

The Enclosures and Stands

The Enclosures and Stands

The type of ticket you buy will grant you access to different enclosures and stands. Some will give you a grandstand view of all the action on the course. Others provide more specialist views – of the finish line perhaps, or offering easy access to restaurants, bars and hospitality suites.

The Red Rum Garden

The Red Rum Garden

Accessible with all racecourse tickets and badges, the Red Rum Garden contains a statue of arguably the most iconic horse to have ridden at Aintree.

Having won the Grand National on three occasions in 1973, 1974 and 1977 Red Rum is immortalised on our grounds and often provides a fantastic visitor attraction.

Across the three days of the Grand National (and occasionally on other racedays throughout the year), the Garden is a hive of activity and entertainment, including the famous Ladies Day Style Award.
