Aintree Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Merseyside...

This ancient town takes its name from a Saxon word meaning lone tree and, as unlikely as it might seem, the ancient trunk of this tree still survives.

The town, however, is famous as the place where the Grand National has been run each spring since 1839.

Red Rum, the legendary triple winner of the race, is buried next to the winning post at Aintree racecourse.
