Palace House, the National Heritage Centre for Horseracing & Sporting Art is gearing up for one of the busiest weekends in Newmarket’s calendar by announcing an exciting offer, on Saturday 4th, Sunday 5th and Monday 6th May all day tickets to Palace House will be ‘Buy One Get One Free.’ The QIPCO Guineas Festival is one of the biggest racing festivals of the year and Palace House is the prefect pre-Guineas venue for racing fans, art lovers and families to visit before heading to the Rowley Mile for the first Classic of the flat season.
Palace House is a five-acre site in the heart of Newmarket. It comprises three complementary attractions. The National Horseracing Museum in the Trainer’s House and King’s Yard Galleries is where you can learn about the history of horseracing through our state-of-the-art audio-visual displays and even have a go at becoming a jockey on our industry standard racing simulator.
The Tack Room restaurant also makes the perfect venue for a pre-racing brunch or a post-racing dinner, somewhere to meet friends to enjoy the sunshine on the terrace in the King’s Yard while sampling something off the menu.
The Packard Galleries of British Sporting Art are situated in the remains of King Charles II’s racing palace, 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 Rothschild Yard, built by Leopold de Rothschild in 1903, has been returned to its former glory to stable retrained racehorses. Four galleries in the yard explain the work of the Retraining of Racehorses (RoR) charity and visitors will be able to meet former racehorses including current RoR resident Big Orange. 2007 Ascot Gold Cup winner Big Orange, a Newmarket legend, will be in the Rothschild Yard meeting museum visitors until June.
Chris Garibaldi, Director of Palace House said “I’m so pleased to announce our Buy One Get One Free offer during the upcoming Bank Holiday Weekend. Palace House is the perfect start to a race day or an ideal way to end a weekend enjoying the QIPCO Guineas Festival.”
