The course at Aintree has plenty of parking and has very good links with the motorway system, situated a mile from the M57 and M58. The course is well served by train.
British Rail offers a luxury journey for travellers from the South- east, starting at London Euston, to and from Lime Street station in Liverpool. Passengers complete the trip to Aintree from Central station, a short walk from Lime Street. For pounds 100 (the 1992 price), the traveller receives a full breakfast with champagne and a four- course dinner on the return trip, arriving in London at 10.30pm. All seats are non-smoking.
