Explore Newmarket in Suffolk

Newmarket in Suffolk is the birthplace and home of British horseracing, and the location of the historic Newmarket Racecourses. Annually, Newmarket holds two of the five British Classic Races, plus countless racing days and the July Festival, the most glamourous event in the racing calendar. As of late 2016, Newmarket became home to the National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and British Sporting Art, the Suffolk Museum of the Year is a world-class centre for sport and culture, and home to retired racehorses in the Retraining of Racehorses programme. If you’re fascinated by the sport of kings, then Newmarket in Suffolk is where you need to be.

With Discover Newmarket, you can go behind the scenes of racing’s sacred and cultural institutions: the Jockey Club Rooms, Tattersalls auction house, trainers' yards, the gallops and The National Stud to name but a few. Tours for groups and individuals run all year round. Public tour dates are available with an option for you to design your own bespoke tour.

Some Newmarket attractions are best experienced at dawn, such as the gallops, where you can watch jockeys and horses train. There’s also plenty to do in Newmarket after dark, including excellent bars and restaurants, après race parties at Newmarket Racecourses, and Newmarket Nights, a series of after-race summer concerts.
