National Horse Racing Museum

Welcome to The National Horse Racing Museum

NHRM at The Palace House Estate is a stunning 5-acre living museum site, right in the very heart of Newmarket. We also have the fabulous Tack Room Restaurant, a working Forge, a Bakery and Gift Shop on-site and visits can take from 3 hours to a full day, and sometimes even more…!

NHRM tells the story of horseracing from its earliest origins to the global phenomenon it is today. The economic contribution of horseracing to the UK economy alone is estimated to be in the region of. £3.5 billion, with over 85,000 jobs supported by the industry.

This 350-year-old relationship is explored through stunning works of art, contemporary sculptures, breathtaking architecture, through to equine science, some of the world’s most famous racing trophies and unique bronzes and artefacts. Using the latest interactive and audiovisual displays, the museum also takes a different look at the sport, examining the physical attributes of the elite equine athlete and the importance of the thoroughbred pedigree. Your visit will not be complete without riding a winner on our famous Racehorse Simulator!
