The National Stud

Tours run from March to October, during March and September tours run Wednesday to Sunday at 11.15 and at 14.00 on weekends and school holidays. From October they run Wednesay to Sunday at 11.15 only. This means that there is plenty of opportunity to re-visit the stud to experience different parts of the breeding year. Most tours include visits to the Foaling Unit and nursery paddocks in the early spring, where you may see newborn foals. During school holidays tours run twice daily, Monday to Sunday.


Have you seen our family ticket offer? Throughout School holidays a family of four can enjoy the National Stud tour for as little as £30.00, a huge saving of £14.00


These tours are very popular and therefore PRE BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL, please book via our website or call the booking office on 0844 748 9200, option 1.


You also get to see our superb Stallion Unit, with the opportunity to see the stallions in their paddocks or going about their daily work, as well as visiting various yards and paddocks where you can watch the mares and foals grazing and enjoying the sunshine (foals available February – June).


The National Stud is great for group visits.


Our Wavertree Coffee Shop is well equipped for large groups with indoor and outdoor seating for those summer months. With a friendly team  of tour guides and coffee shop staff we are able to cater for your every need.
