Discover Newmarket is proud to bring you this fascinating tour.

 

The History and Heritage Tour includes a historic Walking Tour where you can discover the history and heritage of Newmarket from the time of King James I to the present day and learn how the town has developed into the international Home of Horseracing.

 

Starting at 09.00 at the top of the high street at the Bill Tutte Memorial, the tour will take in sights of historical interest including Palace House, the Jockey Club Rooms, All Saints Church and Tattersalls. The walking tour on it’s own will last approx two hours.

The complete History and Heritage walking tour includes both the full walking tour and breakfast tier at The Tack Room outlined above, as well as the newly opened National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art which is situated in Charles II’s sporting palace and stables and spans five acres in the heart of Newmarket. During the visit there will be time to enjoy lunch in the Tack Room restaurant if desired after exploring the sites three complimentary attractions.
