Discover Newmarket is the official tourism organisation for Newmarket and offers a wide range of guided tours and walks designed to give you an in-depth insight into the world of horseracing. These tours are perfect for horse lovers, racing fans or those with an interest in history and culture. A series of public tours run throughout the year as well as an option to book private, bespoke experiences.
From the splendour of a morning on the famed gallops, to meeting some of the stars of the turf, to going inside hallowed institutions such as the Jockey Club Rooms and the Tattersallssales complex. A Discover Newmarket tour allows you to fully explore the history and heritage of this unique town and its 3,000 equine residents. Go behind the scenes of a trainer’s yard or take a tour of The National Stud which covers over 500 acres and where over 150 foals are born each year. Delve into history with a visit to National Horseracing Museum with its amazing interactive exhibitions and have a go at the horse simulator.
Whether you are new to racing or looking for a VIP experience, the Behind the Scenes Race Day Tour takes place before the start of the day’s racing and gives you the chance to experience areas of the racecourse that are usually off limits to the public.
