Racing: Martell Grand National: Plan Ahead
Friday 11 February 1994
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.
Aintree also offers hospitality packages. A luxury day out with County Stand badge and reserved dining in a marquee on the Paddock lawn costs pounds 185 plus VAT per person.
For atmosphere and value, the Steeplechase enclosure, with increased facilities this year, affords views of Becher's Brook and the Canal Turn. Similarly, the Central enclosure provides views of The Chair fence and the finish.
