Pocket Guide: Newmarket National Horseracing Museum Hotels

The National Horseracing Museum is located in Newmarket, a market town in Suffolk and the epicentre of horseracing in the UK. The museum charts the history of horseracing across seven galleries, and houses an extensive collection of fine art and racing memorabilia, over 8,000 objects in total. Even if you're not a horseracing aficionado, the National Horseracing Museum is a great place to for a family day out, where you can discover the royal origins of the sport and the fascinating stories behind some of the world's most famous jockeys.

Discover the History Of Horseracing from Hotels in Suffolk

As befits the sport of royalty, the National Horseracing Museum was opened by the Queen in 1983. Today, the extensive collections include relatively modern items such as Frankie Dettori's racing silks, to some slightly macabre exhibits like the skeleton of 1933 Derby winner Hyperion. As well as a wide variety of fascinating objects, the museum has a racing simulator and regularly hosts tours, educational events and activities for kids. Horse racing can be a tiring business, so once you've galloped around all the exhibits you can trot over to the café for some refreshments, or pick up a souvenir from the gift shop.

Easily Reached from Suffolk Hotels

The National Horseracing Museum is open 7 days a week, all year round. Located on Newmarket's High Street, the museum is very easily reached by car or by public transport, with many buses from nearby Cambridge and Bury St. Edmunds and with Newmarket railway station less than 10-minutes’ walk away. With such good transport links and many great hotels in Suffolk and the surrounding area, it's definitely worth stopping by the museum even if you don't know your furlongs from your fillies! You'll find many top hotels and guesthouses in Newmarket, such as the Rutland Arms and Bloodstock Barn, and in nearby Bury St. Edmunds, including The Bull Inn, The Boltons, and The White Horse.

Newmarket is famous as the heart of British horseracing and the global centre of thoroughbred horse racing. As well as the National Horseracing Museum, in Newmarket, you'll also find one of the country's top racecourses and The National Stud farm. This lively market town welcomes a huge number of tourists especially on race-day, and you'll find plenty of pubs, bars, restaurants and retail outlets dotted around the place.
