John Smith?s Grand National 2008

See Event Calendar | See Events list
April 3, 2008 - April 5, 2008

Retford | Nottinghamshire | United Kingdom (UK)

For a few brief moments each year in April, the world\'s most famous racecourse runs the world\'s most famous race, The John Smith\'s Grand National.

The first official races at Aintree were set up by the owner of Liverpool\'s Waterloo Hotel, Mr William Lynn who leased the land from Lord Sefton, laid out a course, built a grandstand and staged the first Flat fixture on July 7, 1829. The Aintree Grand National was first run in 1839 and was won by the 5-1 favourite "Lottery".

The Grand National Festival continues to increase in popularity and the 2008 event promises 3 days of superb action.  Each day has a race over the spectacular Grand National fences which are viewed from the superb triple decker marquee, first seen in the UK at Doncaster for the St Leger Festival.

 Racecourse Hospitality will have a top class facility giving fantastic views of the start and finish of the National plus fences over the Melling Road.

As well as elevated balcony viewing, the facility will allow both private suites for numbers exceeding 24 and reserved tables for smaller numbers in an atmospheric facility in the heart of the action.

Private tables in our restaurant are available for parties with 8 or more guests, those with smaller numbers will be on shared facilities.
