Newmarket Races

Newmarket Racecourse

THE HOME OF HORSERACING

Newmarket’s two racecourses - the Rowley Mile and the July Course – host some of the finest Flat racing on the planet, across 39 fixtures and including nine Group 1 contests.

 

Headlined by the first two Classics of the season, the QIPCO 2000 and QIPCO 1000 Guineas, other highlights include the Moët and Chandon July Festival and the Dubai Future Champions Festival.

 

Outside of the racing the July Course plays host to some of the exciting live music acts via the hugely popular Newmarket Nights series, as well as a series of great value family days.

 

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.

Ickworth Park and National Trust

Ickworth National Trust

A GREAT DAY OUT FOR ALL THE FAMILY

Ickworth's Italianate garden is one of the first of its kind in the UK. Designed for privacy, space and freedom, it's a distillation of the gardens of classical Italy given an individual English touch.

Ickworth house with its classical Rotunda, East and West Wings, forms the centrepiece of the Ickworth estate. It reflects its former owners, the Hervey Family’s tenacious spirit and has been preserved by the custodianship and influence of unconventional men and women over successive generations.
