About Newmarket

The birthplace and home of British horse racing and the location of the historic Newmarket Racecourse, this town, just 20 minutes away from Bury St Edmunds, is a unique and fascinating place to visit with something of interest for everyone.

You can see mares and their foals at the National Stud, tour the famous Newmarket gallops and racing yards, find out more about the history of horse racing at the National Horse Racing Museum, enjoy the thrill of a day’s racing and cap it all off with dinner in comfortable and relaxed surroundings.

Hearing the thunder of hooves and roar of the crowd at Newmarket Racecourse is an unforgettable experience.

With Discover Newmarket's Tours you can go behind the scenes at racing’s headquarters. See the equine stars at work, meet their trainers and meet the staff who look after them.

There’s also plenty to do in Newmarket after dark, including excellent bars and restaurants, and après race parties at Newmarket Racecourse.

Plus there's Newmarket Nights, a series of after-race summer concerts which in the past have attracted the likes of Kylie Minogue, Tom Jones, Kaiser Chiefs and Olly Murrs.

Find out more about Newmarket by visiting Discover Newmarket and Love Newmarket.
