National Heritage Centre at Palace House Newmarket

The King's Yard
Food icon Shop icon Library icon Study area icon Wheelchair access icon

The National Heritage Centre is a five acre site in the heart of Newmarket. It comprises three complementary attractions; National Horseracing Museum in the Trainer’s House and King’s Yard Galleries, Packard Galleries of British Sporting Art in Palace House, and a chance to meet former racehorses in the flagship home of Retraining of Racehorses. We have a restaurant, bakery and shop onsite. Visits can take from 3 hours to a full day, and sometimes even more... However, don’t worry if you can’t fit it all in in one day – you can purchase an annual ticket or upgrade on the day meaning you can come back as many times as you want from 12 months of purchase.
