In a city, where football is a religion, it quite a surprise to realize that one of the worlds most watched sporting events, broadcast from Liverpool, is actually a horse-race.

Home of the John Smith’s Grand National, Aintree is one of the world’s most famous racecourses. With over two miles of luscious green racetrack, and horse racing’s biggest stars taking to this jumps only course, racing there is always a sight to behold.

Renowned for the most challenging chase in the world and one of the biggest tests available of both racehorse and rider, the Grand National is run around two circuits of the course – with 30 fences and four and a half miles covered. There are numerous famous landmarks which are an integral part of Grand National folklore; Becher’s Brook, the Canal Turn, Valentine’s and the Chair are fences known around the globe.

Inglewood Manor is just 50 minutes from Aintree, and provides the perfect luxurious bolt-hole after a day at the races.
