Private tours through The Jockey Club Rooms can be organised on dates that fall outside of the racing calendar. These intriguing tours, which incorporate comical stories of rich and well known racing nobility, last approximately 90 minutes and can be orchestrated to incorporate lunch, evening tea or supper.
Outside of our racing calendar we are happy to arrange exclusive bespoke tours of Newmarket for private groups via our affinity with Discover Newmarket. In the past these tours have not just appealed to racing enthusiasts but to those who are interested in learning more about a sport that is an intrinsic part of our cultural heritage. These unique events have been used by guests to celebrate important occasions such as a milestone birthday or a retirement.
