Discover Newmarket offers exclusive behind the scenes, guided tours to ensure your visit to the Home of Horseracing is a memorable one.
With a host of tours that take you into the heart of horseracing HQ , Discover Newmarket is perfect for groups of all interests and sizes. From set group tours through to bespoke options, we can build the perfect experience for your needs including refreshment breaks from a quick cuppa to a full blown three course meal.
Whether you are an avid race goer, a lover of history or just looking for something new to do with your group, there’s something for everyone to enjoy on a group tour.
Discover Newmarket can create a truly unique experience for your group that includes exactly what you want to see and do in our historic town.
Available seven days a week, our Bespoke Tours can take you to some of the best horseracing spots in Newmarket including:
The National Stud
The National Horseracing Museum
Newmarket’s Famed Gallops
The Jockey Club Rooms
The British Racing School
We can even provide transport for you with our coach partner, Greys of Ely or you can utilise our own Discover Newmarket vehicles. Just give us a call to discuss.
New for this year, we have two exciting tours:
Race Day Tour
Experience this VIP, full day’s experience perfect for both newcomers to horseracing as well as old timers. Start your day early with a tour of the famed Gallops, then enjoy a tour of The National Stud before relaxing with a Champagne brunch. Your guide will then take you to the racecourse for a behind the scenes tour. This is the perfect VIP experience as you visit areas not normally accessible to members of the public such as the Parade Ring and Royal Box. For those less familiar with racing, then there is the opportunity to learn how to read a race card, place a bet and even how to spot a winner (in theory anyway!). You are then left to enjoy an afternoon at the races – what could be better!
Racing Royalty Tour
Find out more about the town’s strong royalty connections in this driving and walking tour. Then enjoy a guided tour of Palace House, the former home of Charles II and now part of the National Horseracing Museum complex. Finish your tour with a traditional Royal Cream Tea.
To find out more, then do give us a call or drop us a line.
We know that groups come in various sizes and whilst we cater for larger groups, we haven’t forgotten the smaller ones. So, if you are an individual, a couple, a family or a small group of friends we can arrange a private tour of all our public tours for you. For an extra, one off fee of £50 you can have your very own Early Riser, Newmarket Experience, Ultimate Newmarket Experience or Guided Walk on a date of your choice. Just perfect for celebrating a special occasion.
If you are looking to reward your staff or would like to impress clients, then our tours could be just the answer. Contact us to discuss your requirements and let us help you make a memorable, bespoke package, guaranteed to impress.
