The National Heritage Centre offers a great day out for all the family. With so much to see and do it is well worth a visit.

The five acre site in the heart of Newmarket comprises three attractions;

National Horseracing Museum:
The National Horseracing Museum tells the story of horseracing from its earliest origins to the world-wide phenomenon it is today.
Using the latest interactive and audio visual displays the Museum also takes a different look at the sport, examining the physical attributes of the elite equine athlete and the importance of thoroughbred pedigree.
Your visit will not be complete without riding a winner on our famous Racehorse Simulator!

Rothschild Yard:
The Rothschild Yard stables up to 8 former racehorses, showcasing the work of the Retraining of Racehorses charity and illustrating how thoroughbreds can be re-trained effectively for a successful after horseracing. Daily demonstrations take place at 11am and 2.30pm everyday – see our website for more details

Fred Packard Galleries:
Situated in the remaining element of Charles II’s racing palace is the Fred Packard Museum and Galleries of British Sporting Art – a new home for the British Sporting Art Trust.
Paintings by George Stubbs and Sir Alfred Munnings rub shoulders with works from John Singer Sargent and John Wootton showcasing the finest British Sporting Art from around the UK.
The new gallery explores the development of these popular sporting images through paintings, sculpture, print-making and the applied arts. Significant loans have come from the Tate and Victoria & Albert Museum along with a number of private and public art collections.

The onsite restaurant and bakery delivers delicious homemade meals using the best produce East Anglia has to offer and the Palace House Shop sells unique gifts to remind you of your visit.
