Aintree racecourse is a left-handed, flat, galloping track on both the hurdle and chase courses. The Mildmay course on both tracks is sharp, while on the Grand National course runners encounter famously stiff fences.
A £35 million redevelopment of the course's facilities was completed in 2007, with two new grandstands accompanying the existing three stands.
All five grandstands have a variety of seating options, with prices rising accordingly. Roof positions in the Princess Royal and Queen Mother stands are cheaper than the seated equivalent.
In the Earl of Derby and Lord Sefton stands, terrace tickets are the cheaper option than the upper and lower seats in both stands.
The County stand is situated directly in line with the winning post with tickets available on the roof of the enclosure.
Tattersalls enclosure has access to the parade ring and winners' enclosure. The Aintree mound also provides a good vantage point for racegoers.
The Steeplechase enclosure is the cheapest enclosure at the course, with a more relaxed dress code and unreserved seating. However, this enclosure does not provide access to the parade ring.
