The Silver Birch Garden Party is a marquee facility, which has been themed to a high standard to create a modern, stylish lounge that boasts some unique features, including an after-party for two hours after the last race. The facility is named after the 2007 winner of the 160th Grand National and is only available for Friday & Saturday of the Grand National Meeting.
The Silver Birch is situated looking directly down the home straight, although it is a little distance from the winning post. However, its location, on the bend past the Lord Sefton Stand, also affords views of the start of the Grand National course. There is a balcony running the length of the marquee with a small viewing elevation.
The marquee is superbly themed, with a striking floral and cream décor. There is loads of natural light as the marquee is fully glass-fronted, overlooking the course. Most of the tables are round dining tables, however, it should be noted that there are a few decorative high tables and chairs. Although they provide an informal vibe, the chairs may not be entirely comfortable for the entire day. The marquee also features a relaxing lounge area.
Private tables are available for 10-12 guests. Smaller groups will need to share a table.
Premier Course Admission is included.
Nibbles are served on arrival, followed by a four-course choice menu. Later in the day, Traditional Afternoon Tea is served.
You will enjoy a cocktail on arrival, and the bar is complimentary, including beers, wine, spirits, and soft drinks. There is also a gin & cocktail bar. Please note, however, that Champagne, cocktails, and premium drinks are an extra cost. The two-hour after-party is a cash bar.
Service throughout is left to the waiting staff. There is not a hostess service.
There is no guest tipster included in this facility. There is an acoustic band playing sets throughout the day. A live DJ set gets the after-party off with a bang!
There are several TV monitors in the marquee, but not enough that all guests have a view.
Steeplechase car park passes are included on a 1:4 basis. The car park is situated in the centre of the racecourse, so it is a little walk across the course to access the marquee.
A Racecard is included, and there are Tote betting facilities available.
There is no official dress code at Aintree Racecourse, although smart is preferable. Hats are optional but frequently worn. Sports clothes and fancy dresses are not permitted for the Grand National meeting.
GPS users can get to Aintree Racecourse using the postcode L9 5AS, then follow signs for parking. If arriving by train, the closest station is Aintree Station, directly opposite the racecourse.
