Sent to the 2013 Grand National with a group of friends and we all had a great day out, definitely going to go again! Having attended many large event throughout the UK I was impressed with the bar's as there was never any cueing.

Wow what a great day out. I spent the day with friends in the corbier restaurant where the staff were absolutely fantastic, pleasant very helpful and really well presented.
The service and the food were very good.
The course was presented to the highest standards I think much more so than Cheltenham.
Very pleased with all aspects of the day and even had a winner.
Super venue thanks.

Love the grand national. The atmosphere is fantastic. Whether you pay for tatts or one of the stands, which we have done both. This year the men decided to just wear jeans and us girls dressed smart.
The amount of different styles and colour of ladies dresses is wonderful to see.
We have never seen any trouble, everyone is happy and out to enjoy there selfs.
It is so well organized. We are already looking forward to next years.

Went to the grand national and it was a great day. Everything was really relaxed and it wasn't chaotic inside in the enclosure even though there was a crowd. We could easily get seats by the parade ring. The queues for the bars and the betting office are a bit long and unorganised. Tip is to bet on the all of races in the one go to avoid the rushing to the bookies. We were in the tatterstalls stand and it was mad. We had to go to the enclosure a good hour before the grand national to just get into the enclosure and get a view of the track. Other than that, it's a great track and even if you have no interest in racing, the atmosphere is great!! It's an impressive race track and well worth the value for money for tickets for a great day out.

We went for the national this year and 1 word can only be used AMAZING i can't wait to go again next year. The organisation at the course and train station was 11 out of 10 the prices were as expected but your at the biggest horse race of the year so what do you expect. Had a perfect view of the horses, I'm counting down the days until next years race :)
