Glory Days Organisation
We have been providing Official tours and packages since 2001. The relationships we have developed with events and hotels guarantee an unforgettable experience. We are ATOL and ABTOT protected, meaning you can book with confidence – you’re in safe hands.
We have a guaranteed allocation of Official tickets for the Grand National. Choose from Steeplechase, Festival Zone or Princess Royal Seats & Gallery tickets, or get in touch with us to tailor a package to suit you.
These tickets are included in our packages. Open on Grand National Day only, the Steeplechase enclosure provides prime viewing of the first fences of the Grand National Course, unreserved seating and with a relaxed dress code, and it offers a unique outdoor Grand National experience. Although this area does not give access to the Parade Ring and Grandstands side of the racecourse, the Steeplechase Enclosure has an atmosphere all of its own. Racegoers can soak in the anticipation and excitement that is felt by the jockeys as they canter down to the first fence in the big race itself. This area is inclusive of its own bars, catering, betting facilities, big screen viewing and live entertainment

There may be more to The Grand National Festival than you thought! Explore The Festival Zone and create your own unique Aintree experience. Your Zone pass gives you access to racing, live music, food and drink, entertainment and Parade Ring viewing. Check out the map to find out exactly where you can go during your day with us.
