National Horseracing Museum and Tours

Palace House, Palace Street, NEWMARKET, CB8 9RU

Situated in the Royal setting of Charles II's sporting palace and stables, this historic five acre site in the heart of Newmarket is a great place to find out more about the 'Sport of Kings.' Here you'll find a museum, art gallery, live horses, special exhibitions, a restaurant and shop all under the one roof. Using the latest interactive technologies you can discover the history of horseracing from its origins to the global industry it is today. From skeletons to the racehorse simulator there is something to entertain visitors of all ages. In the Fred Packard Galleries, you can see the best of British sporting art from the 17th century to the present day. In Rothschild Yard you can meet racing's equine heroes. For the first time former racehorses can be seen seven days a week with daily demonstrations in the Peter O'Sullevan Arena at 11am and 2.30pm. When you need a feed, the Tack Room Restaurant is the place for a nosebag of home-cooked food throughout the day. There's also a great gift shop.
