On 3rd November 2016 Her Majesty the Queen opened the new National Heritage Centre for Horseracing & Sporting Art. Situated in the remaining elements of Charles II’s sporting palace and stables it spans five acres in the heart of Newmarket and comprises three complementary attractions.

The National Horseracing Museum:
This tells the story of horseracing from its earliest origins to the world-wide phenomenon it is today.
Using the latest interactive and audio visual displays the Museum also takes a different look at the sport, examining the physical attributes of thoroughbreds and the importance of breeding.
Your visit will not be complete without riding a winner on our famous Racehorse Simulator!

The Rothschild Yard:
This stables up to 8 former racehorses, showcasing the work of the Retraining of Racehorses charity and illustrating how thoroughbreds can be re-trained for a successful career after racing. Check our website for more details of the resident horses and daily demonstrations

Fred Packard Galleries:
Situated in Palace House is the Fred Packard Museum and Galleries of British Sporting Art - a new home for the British Sporting Art Trust.
Paintings by George Stubbs and Sir Alfred Munnings rub shoulders with works from John Singer Sargent and John Wootton, with significant loans from public and private collections the gallery displays the finest British Sporting Art from around the UK.

The Top Ten Places for a Family Break in Suffolk by Lisa Burn

"Follow in the footsteps of royalty as you visit Newmarket and experience the excitement of the ‘Sport of Kings’. As well as an unrivalled collection of racing and equine memorabilia and art, this museum is hands on – ride the mechanical racehorse for a taste of jockey life or dress in racing silks. For kids, there’s a Diamond Jubilee quiz and a chance to tack up a model. Combine your visit with a trip to the gallops to see horses in training or a tour of a working yard."
