We went to Newmarket to to our The National Stud. It was an excellent tour and I would have given it five stars had it been the appropriate time of the year. The tour guide, coach and coffee house was very nice. Only two stallions still there as the rest are moved. To the southern hemisphere. Got to see the... More

Great value for money, the tour lasts about 90 mins and is a combination of mini bus and walking. The guides are very knowledgeable - will be back!

Visited at end of July, just for fun. Still lots to see and interesting stories to hear. We're not even horse lovers, but we live in Newmarket now so thought we'd better hear a bit more about the history of this place. It was great! Strongly recommend it. Met a few of the mares and their youngish foals.

went on an organized tour of the stud.our tour guide was malcolm who was very knowlegable and informative about the stud workings,history and the stallions that are living there.the only downside visiting in july is that only a few foals remain there and two stallions are away on other stud duites but still well worth a visit

Really interesting. Well worth visiting. The guide we had was very well informed and made the tour so interesting. Although in July which is probably not the best time to see mares and their foals we were lucky enough to see one which was absolutely adorable.

We had a tour of the National Stud and found it interesting and informative. To see the foals was great fun as they bounced around the paddock. Cafe left a lot to be desired which was disappointing as it could be so much better - the venue, overlooking the paddocks is lovely. Our guide was very knowledgable and had a... More

Had a fantastic tour, we were out of the main season but there was still plenty to hear about and see. Beautiful setting and lovely horses.
