WHERE IS THE GREEN ROOM LOCATED?
The Corbiere Suite is located on the third floor of the Lord Sefton Stand, and is quite simply the best viewing restaurant at the course. This superb suite offers panoramic views across the whole racecourse from the luxury of a private balcony.
This truly is a fantastic suite which will allow your clients to enjoy hospitality, whilst watching the horses battle for first past the winning post .
WHAT IS THE BEST POINT OF ENTRY FOR THE GREEN ROOM?
If you are arriving by car, after parking in the Steeplechase Car park (within the centre of the racecourse), you will need to pass through the security checkpoint (airport style). Once through security, you are then able to board the free shuttle bus which will take you to a drop-off point opposite the Lord Daresbury Stand.
Aintree is a spectacle of colour throughout the year, with many using their trip to the racecourse as an opportunity to showcase their favourite race day outfits. Hats are optional too, but are frequently worn.
“I’m really looking forward to being part of the 2022 Green Room at the Grand National. There’s nothing that compares to Aintree and The Green Room. I can’t wait to be up close with Sir AP McCoy OBE as well as Mike and Zara Tindall.”
– JONJO O’NEILL JR
