Great value for a tour around the stud. Lovely to see the foals. Also get to see famous name horses retired to stud. Very special memories. Worth booking ahead to avoid disappointment

We booked the National Stud tour online at short notice. Being October there is only one tour daily, departing in the morning (in the summer there are two tours daily, morning and early afternoon, each accommodating up to about 30 people) When we arrived at the reception centre - also the café - we found that there was only one...

We did a tour of the stud following a morning at the Horseracing Museum and a Jockey Club Estate tour (a must do also) The tour of the stud was most informative and at a gently pace so that all could enjoy the amazing surroundings and horses. Our tour guide was full of information and most happy to answer any... More

We were staying in Cambridge and booked to take the morning tour on our second day. I love horses, neither of us are fans of horse racing, but the tour was very informative, we saw some foals that had been weaned, 3 stallions and loads of mares. My husband can take or leave horses, but he wants to return next... More

My Fiance and me visited here on 11th August and truly enjoyed every minute of our two hour visit. We couldn't believe the expanse of the stud, its wonderful land and those beautiful horses and foals. Highlight of the visit for us was feeding the lovely Amberleigh House, what a gentle giant he is. We gained so much knowledge about... More

Whilst visiting the Newmarket area with friends, I was told that one of them had arranged a visit to, and a tour of, The National Stud in Newmarket. Not being a "horsey or racing" person in any form, I went with a willing heart for the sake of harmony in the group - am I glad I did !. Nice... More

My horsey friend and I visited the Stud, as neither of us had ever been. It is a guided tour that starts in the pleasant cafe, where we meet our guide before boarding a mini bus that takes around the large site. All the way through we are given information about the breeding and management of these beautiful horses. Even... More

We had this trip booked by our relatives as we wanted to do something different on our trip to see them, didn't really know what to expect but we were pleasantly suprised. We were met at the cafe by our guide and escorted onto a mini bus, this left the parking area and the guide told us some of the... More

I am the horse indifferent partner of a horse racing enthusiast but agreed to take a morning out to visit the National Stud. Surprisingly I had a really brilliant time! Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable and answered all our questions, however basic or daft. The horses were beautiful, including the foals. Plus it's not every day you meet... More
