Overview
More
The National Stud remains the only commercial stud farm in the UK allowing individuals, small groups and large parties the chance to see behind the scenes of a working Thoroughbred stud farm. Tours of The National Stud, run by Discover Newmarket, last approximately 90 minutes and are taken by coach and on foot. The tours focus on introducing visitors to the history and purpose of The National Stud as a commercial Thoroughbred breeding operation. The National Stud is a working commercial stud farm, so the physical content of the tours varies throughout the year, depending on the season and the activities happening on the stud when you visit.

Had a great morning at the National stud. Very good guide (Char) I think who had answers to all questions. Fascinating, only sorry we don't live near enough to visit Newmarket more often. Well worth visit if you're in the area.
