Available dates

What better way to spend a day enjoying Newmarket than with an extra special experience. 

Whether you want to treat someone or just treat yourself, please come along and enjoy a wonderful day with Discover Newmarket. You will start your day by visiting the thriving Newmarket Gallops where you will see some of the 3,000 racehorses exercising on the 2,500 acres of Jockey Club Estates land. Then get a behind-the-scenes tour of a busy racing yard before heading to the prestigious members' only club, The Jockey Club Rooms.

Founded in the middle of the 18th century, the wonderfully preserved Jockey Club Rooms still boasts original features from the days when gentlemen, politicians and royalty met to discuss, wager and argue over their racehorses. You will receive a guided tour of the The Jockey Club's incredible collection of sporting art and racing memorabilia which provide an eclectic and truly unique collection - the pictures and artefacts united by a shared passion for racing which spans four centuries.

Following this, indulge in a sumptuous three-course lunch.
