national stud tour 1

A visit to Newmarket isn’t just about looking at the horses, it’s also a chance to get an insight into just what makes the home of horseracing so special. Newmarket is a hive of places to explore, offering groups the perfect day out.

The team at Discover Newmarket are able to offer group visitors a full, bespoke tour service for a number of attractions, which can accommodate all group sizes and budgets. Your group will be able to learn about the rich history and heritage the town has to offer, alongside its royal connections, all expertly told by informative and entertaining tour guides. The pairing of a morning at The National Stud and an afternoon at the National Horseracing Museum takes some beating.

The National Stud is the only commercial stud farm in the UK open to public tours, making it a unique feature within this town. Whether you’re a racing fan or not, you’ll be able to engross yourself in the history and life on the stud as you explore the 500-acre site. As well as being the home to famous stallions, such as Stradivarius, you’ll also be in with a chance of seeing 2024’s newest arrivals.

The team at Discover Newmarket are able to accommodate group tours on any day of the week using their own 26-seater bus, or their tour guides are happy to hop on to your own coach. A guided tour of this beautiful stud farm takes approximately 90 minutes and involves some walking.

Why not continue your tour and head to the National Horseracing Museum, situated in the heart of Newmarket? Refreshments can be provided to your group via the two onsite catering facilities: take a seat in The Tack Room for a bite to eat or pick up a hot drink at The Bakery, before taking a wander round the museum, the former racing yard of Charles II.

The Discover Newmarket tour guides provide an overview of this impressive five-acre site, explaining how this small town became the British home of horseracing. You’ll then be able to explore the impressive Sporting Art Collections in Palace House, immerse in the interactive displays and exhibitions and also hear the stories about the resident ex-racehorses on a behind the scenes tour, finding out about their new careers post racing.

With ample coach parking, toilets, gift shop, café and restaurant, all your group's needs are provided. Get in contact with the dedicated Tours Advisor and organise the perfect day out for you.
