Newmarket is a market town in the English county of Suffolk, approximately 65 miles north of London. It is generally considered the birthplace and global centre of thoroughbred horse racing, and a future UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Newmarket is the largest racehorse training centre in Britain, and home to most major British horseracing institutions. Five British Champions Series races are held at Newmarket every year. Newmarket has over fifty horse training stables, two large racetracks, The Rowley Mile and The July Course and one of the most extensive horse training grounds in the world. The town is home to over 3,000 racehorses, and it is estimated that one in every three local jobs is related to horse racing. The town is home to the National Horseracing Museum, Tattersalls, the racehorse auctioneers and two of the world's foremost equine hospitals for horse health. The town is surrounded by over sixty horse breeding studs.
Newmarket High Street is a shopper’s delight! Indulge your predilection for the Great British High Street or for that extra special, unique purchase, peruse the many boutique shops such as Vintage Angel, Martha V and Rocking Rabbit, many of which boast beautiful timber-framed buildings.
High quality gift shops range from quirky and charming, to traditional silversmiths, art and antique dealers and family jewellers. Here you can stop and relax over a coffee and watch the world go by, drop into the traditional butchers to taste our famous Newmarket Sausage or browse our general markets on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
At the top of the High Street is the grand Newmarket Clock Tower, built to commemorate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee in 1887. It still takes 115 full turns to wind it up each week. Close to the clock are the peaceful War Memorial Gardens.
