With half term in Newmarket fast approaching, are you looking for ways to keep the kids amused? Below we’ve given you three top options for entertaining your little treasures this holiday.
On this full-day tour you will experience the magic of the gallops, see behind-the-scenes at a working racing yard, explore 500 acres of the National Stud, re-fuel at the Wavertrees Coffee Shop and discover racing’s rich history at the National Horseracing Museum.
Tattersalls is the oldest bloodstock auctioneers in the world and the largest in Europe. Our Tattersalls Tour offers an exclusive insight into this hugely important auction house. The day will consist of a guided tour of the gallops and a trainers yard, followed by lunch at either the National Stud or the National Horseracing Museum and finally onto Tattersalls itself to witness all the excitement of a sale.
If a full day out is a bit too much for those little feet, why not enjoy our Short Head Tour instead? This half-day tour begins with a tour of the famous Newmarket Gallops to watch some of the 3,000+ resident racehorses exercising. You will then get to visit a trainers yard and finally, onto the National Horseracing Museum to learn about the history behind it all.
