Historically Altcar played host to the world famous Waterloo Cup from 1836 – 2005 which was the UK’s largest hare coursing event, attracting tens of thousands to watch and bet on the matches in its hay day. The founder of this cup, William Molyneux 2nd Earl of Sefton, went onto create the Grand Liverpool Steeplechase horse race three years after, now famously known across the World as the Grand National.

The Altcar Estate itself, which was once owned by the Sefton family for many generations, has played host to game shooting exclusively for over 100 years. The heritage of the Altcar Estate carries on, and we would like you to share the experience and become part of its centuries old history.
