The Thoroughbred Breakfast

£65 per adult £30 per child (ages 10-16 years)

Get up early with the top trainers in Newmarket as they exercise their horses on Warren Hill and be in the thick of all the action as hundreds of thoroughbreds gallop past you during their early morning exercise. You will begin your day at 07:30 when your tour guide will take you to the famous Newmarket Gallops, followed by a visit to a local trainer’s yard to watch the stable staff busy at work. Then onto the National Stud for a Full English Breakfast at Wavertree’s Cafe, followed by a tour of The National Stud.


You won’t experience Newmarket at a better time of day. Watch the dewy Newmarket Gallops come to life as the sun rises.


Due to the popularity of the Thoroughbred Breakfast we would highly recommend booking at least seven days in advance of your intended tour date.
