Palace House

The National Horse Racing Museum



The National Horse Racing Museum is situated in Charles II’s sporting palace and stables and spans five acres in the heart of Newmarket. It comprises three complementary attractions; a new National Horse Racing Museum, a National Art Gallery of British Sporting Art, and a chance to meet former racehorses and learn what they do after racing, in the flagship home of Retraining of Racehorses.


The museum is the result of over ten years planning, building and fundraising to become the biggest new attraction to open in Suffolk in the last decade. Voted Suffolk Museum of the year 2017.


It also features a superb on site restaurant The Tack Room. It is accessible to all the public, not just  ticket holders, and can be accessed via large gates on Palace Street directly into the King’s Yard or from the atrium that runs from Rous Road car park through to Palace Street.
