Newmarket Racecourses: The July Course

The July Course has a unique charm and romantic appeal that makes it many people's favourite racecourse. It's where passion and fashion meet sizzling sport to create an exhilarating atmosphere.

There is so much to embrace and enjoy at this magical sporting venue. Everyone makes that little bit of an extra effort when they come to the July Course - not least the trainers with their linen suits...and the leading lady jockeys blazing a style trail.

So it's dress to impress at the popular three-day July Festival and the sell-out Friday nights where concerts from leading rock and pop acts follow on from the racing.

But if you want a touch more relaxed entertainment experience, then our 'Summer Saturdays' are perfect. The July Course really is the ideal backdrop to a family afternoon as we provide a series of themed activity events for children alongside the racing that Newmarket is world renowned for.

There are al fresco dining options and our amazing Summer House Restaurant. Plus, there are many choices when it comes to finding an attractive bar, catering for those seeking the sun and others content to chill out in the shade.

Trust us, we know what makes those days out that little bit extra special. So, try our strawberries and cream, don't miss the locally-made ice-cream with its temptingly wide selection of flavours (come each Saturday and try a different one!) and check out the flowers from our own nursery that climb across the Paddock Pagoda and spill over from the hanging baskets.

Here's another secret: don't miss our exquisite pre-parade ring. It possesses an almost cathedral-esque feel with tall trees enclosing it. It is an amazing spot to get within touching distance of some of the world's best racehorses and witness their beauty and power.

The July Course: it's an original that's treasured by many. Like the sunshine, we wouldn't know what to do without it.
