With horse racing’s premier event of the year fast approaching, we take a look at 4 of the best Grand National hospitality packages and how to secure your tickets.

As the most valuable jump race in Europe with a prize purse of £1 million, the Grand National is undoubtedly one of the biggest horse racing events of the year.

Based at the iconic Aintree Racecourse, the National is a four mile long, 30 jump handicap steeplechase. The fences on the course are much larger than those of conventional racetracks, and the event has been labelled as the “Ultimate test of horse and rider”.

The race is contested by 40 horses and has been won by iconic champions such as Tiger Roll, Red Rum and Manifesto. It's an event that is deeply embedded in British culture, with many that don't have a keen interest in horse racing still tuning in to watch the legendary race every year.
