The home of the Crabbie’s Grand National, arguably the most famous horse race on Earth, Liverpool’s world-famous Aintree Racecourse is steeped in history, and offers exciting race cards all year round. You can’t beat a day at the races, and if you’re picking up your 9-seater hire car from our Preston Branch, Aintree Racecourse is just a 40-minute drive down the M6 and M58. A day out at Aintree is sure to be a day to remember, and there are a host of hospitality packages are available for groups – for more information on this, visit the racecourse’s official website here.
Blackpool Pleasure Beach
Ah, Blackpool. This quintessential English Seaside town has attracted hordes of visitors to the Lancashire coast since the 1700s, and remains hugely popular with all ages to this day. Whether you want to catch a show, sample the famous nightlife, or just take a walk down the beach, there’s something for everyone here. Blackpool Pleasure Beach, the town’s famous amusement park, is a sure-fire hit of a day out, whether you’re taking the kids and their friends or embracing your inner child with a group of mates. Incredibly, the site boasts 10 different rollercoasters, including the legendary Big Dipper. Whether you’re looking for white-knuckle thrill rides, or just want to take it easy, it’s almost impossible not to have fun at the Pleasure Beach.
Trough of Bowland
There’s nothing that brings people together more than a day out in the great outdoors, and how lucky we are in Lancashire to have such a national treasure on our doorstep. Part of the vast Forest of Bowland, the Trough of Bowland is a wonder of the natural world, and an absolute must for rambling groups. Once you’ve finished walking for the day, why not stop for a bite to eat and a well-earned drink at the nearby Inn at Whitewell, a world-renowned inn which was recently featured on the popular series The Trip, starring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon.
Knowsley Safari Park
Knowsley Safari Park features all the big hitters of the predator world, such as lions, tigers, and wolves, as well as cute little critters such as marmosets, meerkats, and capybara. In your 9-seater Easirent hire car, you’ll get up-close and personal with these wonderful creatures in a way that no zoo could possibly offer. There is also a selection of rides, live shows, and eateries at the end of the park, making it a fun, full-on day out for all ages.
The wonderful city of Liverpool attracts visitors from all over the world, and is famous for its hospitality, culture, and nightlife. Liverpool’s beautiful waterfront is a world Heritage Site, and a day spent along the pier head features everything you could possibly want from a day out, including museums, art galleries, ferry trips, bars, clubs, and a casino. There are also a slew of hotels along the dock road, meaning that you can park up your Easirent car easily if you’re planning on having a drink or two. Also, for those looking for some retail therapy, the city’s premier retail centre Liverpool One is just around the corner. You simply can’t go wrong!
