The team at Discover Newmarket are keen to welcome back groups with a special message to Group Travel World’s readers…

We have so missed our group visits here in Newmarket and so to show our appreciation we are welcoming you back with two packs of our famous sausages! Each tour operator/organiser will receive two packs of Powters sausages in a branded bag as our way of saying thank you for visiting. We still offer an amazing array of behind the scenes, guided tours designed to give you an insight into the fascinating history and heritage of the home of horseracing. Our tours are suitable for groups of all sizes and provide entertaining and engaging experiences for everyone to enjoy.

From the splendour of a morning on the famed gallops, to meeting some of the stars of the turf, to going inside hallowed institutions like the Jockey Club Rooms and the Tattersalls sales complex. A Discover Newmarket tour allows you to fully explore this unique town and its 3,000 equine residents. Take a tour of The National Stud which covers over 500 acres and where over 150 foals have already been born this year. Delve into the history with a visit to National Horseracing Museum with its amazing interactive exhibitions and have a go at the horse simulator (it isn’t as easy as you think!).

New for this year, we have three new themed walking tours which provides a new angle in which to learn about the town’s intriguing past. Newmarket’s Racing Royalty Tour probes into the past and unravels the story of how the town became renowned as the home of horseracing. Learn about the most noted Royals, from the past 2000 years, and hear about the secrets and scandals of the rich and famous that have helped shape Newmarket into the thoroughbred capital of the world.

The second is a literary tour for all lovers of the Dick Francis crime novels. On the Trail of Dick Francis guides you around the historic town where you will see many of the places that former champion steeplechase, Francis, featured in his realistic plots based in the spiritual home of horseracing. Visit some of the iconic locations where fictious murders, kidnapping and skulduggery took place!

Lastly, hear what else Newmarket is famous for, other than its horses, in our Food and Drink Taster Tour. Find out why the town became famous for its sausages and how it came to have its very own gin and cake and partake in some tastings along the way.

With a bank of expert guides, you can be guaranteed of a memorable experience, whichever tour you choose. We specialise in arranging tailored packages that make the most of your available time.
