Newmarket is a fascinating place to visit. It is rich in history and heritage, surrounded by beautiful countryside and home to some of the most famous names in horseracing. However, arguably the most interesting thing about our town is the many unique and often quirky characteristics that you may not have known existed.
For example, did you know that horses have right of way in Newmarket? If a string of thoroughbreds needs to cross the road, all traffic has to give way! Also, did you know that thousands of acres of training grounds that surround the town are open to the public every day after 2pm? Now that’s a big park! Or how about the fact that Newmarket is the only town in the world to boast two Flat racecourses? The don’t call it the Home of Horseracing for nothing!
If you would like to experience all the quirks of this unique place, the best way to do it is to book a Newmarket tour wth our partner, Discover Newmarket. Discover Newmarket is the town’s official tour guide and offers expert guided tours which get to the very heart of the notoriously secretive racing industry!
