Newmarket is a truly special place. It is a town with a rich, royal history where the thoroughbred racehorse is king. It is the town where horseracing, the "sport of kings", was born some three and a half centuries ago and from where it was exported around the world.
King Charles II returned to Newmarket 25 years after his last visit following Restoration to the Throne and spearheaded the development of the town, Racecourses and industry into what is affectionately known as the global headquarters of racing today; the Home of Horseracing. Still, run to this day, the Town Plate, a race which by law, passed by King Charles II, must be run “forever”, is still staged on the same three-and-three-quarter mile course on which it was inaugurated three and a half centuries ago (according to official records). It is the one and only time each year that the ‘Round Course’ is used.
Alongside the exhilarating excitement of world class flat racing, we also host pulsating music nights, great value family days, award-winning restaurants and exceptional conference & events facilities.
