Newmarket Racecourse Restaurants

The Racecourses at Newmarket

A day out at Newmarket races is special – this is the true home of the sport of kings and there are two fantastic racecourses to choose from depending on the timing of your visit.

The Rowley Mile Course is the grand stage – host to some of the best racing in the world during the spring and autumn months, whilst the July course is a heart stirring place of pure English countryside, garden party atmosphere and top entertainment at the height of summer.

Set in stunning Suffolk countryside yet only 60 miles from London, Newmarket has been home to horseracing since the 17th century when it staged the first ever official race, the Town Plate.

Both the Rowley Mile course and the July course have fabulous Restaurants, featuring a great choice of packages and mouth watering menus. These facilities are ideal for family and friends and make a great base for the day from which to explore the Newmarket racing experience.
