Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“totally Excellent Tour”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

This tour was a gift, and even though we are not "into horses" it was excellent. Chris, our Guide really brought the whole morning to life. Would highly recommend the tour. We did the early morning tour and it was well and truly worth the early start.

“Very informative, shame we went at the wrong time of year”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Our visit to the National Stud was part of an organised day visiting stables, gallops etc. The Stud is amazing and our guide was very informative. We met three stallions and the polo mint crunching Amberleigh House, but as the foaling season has closed, there wasnt a lot else to see. We will be back next year to see the newborns!

“Horse Sex”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Several stallions were on view and the mating with hundreds of mares in the early part of the year were considered. Good catering facilities.
