Is The Grand National the UK’s most famous horse race?
The Grand National, arguably the country’s most famous horse race, will set pulses racing early this April at the Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool.
This event has something for everyone, from those who can’t resist the lure of having a punt on an exciting tip to people who admire the beauty of a horse in full flow, as well anyone who just really likes hats.
From April 2nd to 4th, the finest thoroughbreds will be on display, along with the classiest of fashion and, of course, champagne will be flowing for all.
Much of the Grand National’s mystique is perhaps created by the fact that it has been running since 1839 and still manages to pull in the punters of all ages and backgrounds.
For anyone unfamiliar with the event, it is known as the one horse race which even the most reluctant of gamblers will be tempted to have a flutter on.
While there is no official dress code, many choose to pull out all the stops with their choice of attire, meaning limousine hire will be preferable for travelling to the event.
