Champion stallion Stradivarius is the star of this year's tours of The National Stud in Newmarket. The legendary racehorse retired to stud in 2022 after a stellar career winning group races on multiple occasions, including the Goodwood Cup, which he won a record-breaking four times. He will be on view alongside the other resident stallions, as well as ex-racehorse favourites Lord Windermere and The Tin Man.

The 90-minute National Stud Tour, by coach and foot, is exclusively available to book from Discover Newmarket either online at or by phone on 01638 501122. It offers a fascinating look behind the scenes at the only commercial thoroughbred breeding operation open to the public in the UK.

The National Stud Tour runs on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays at 10.30am and 1.30pm until the end of October and costs £15 per person or £35 for a family ticket (two adults, two children). Private tours are available at other times for a supplementary £50 fee on top of standard ticket prices. Group tours can also be arranged. Visit
