Palace House is a five-acre site in the heart of Newmarket. It comprises three complementary attractions. The National Horseracing Museum in the Trainer’s House and King’s Yard Galleries is where you can learn about the history of horseracing through our state-of-the-art audio-visual displays and even have a go at becoming a jockey on our industry standard racing simulator.

The Tack Room restaurant also makes the perfect venue for a pre-racing brunch, somewhere to meet friends to enjoy the sunshine on the terrace in the King’s Yard while sampling something off the menu.
The Packard Galleries of British Sporting Art are situated in the remains of King Charles II’s racing palace, paintings by George Stubbs and Sir Alfred Munnings rub shoulders with works from John Singer Sargent and John Wootton showcasing the finest British Sporting Art from around the UK.
The Rothschild Yard, built by Leopold de Rothschild in 1903, has been returned to its former glory to stable retrained racehorses. Four galleries in the yard explain the work of the Retraining of Racehorses (RoR) charity and visitors will be able to meet former racehorses including current RoR resident Big Orange. 2007 Ascot Gold Cup winner Big Orange, a Newmarket legend, will be in the Rothschild Yard meeting museum visitors until June.
