The sport has been recorded as far back as 1174, making it the earliest known racing venue of post-classical times. The annual racing calendar includes the Rowley Mile, a race named after Charles II favourite stallion Old Rowley, as well as the July Course. This is a great opportunity to dress up in style and drink champagne!
It is estimated that as many as one in three jobs in the area are related to the racing business. Newmarket is full of hidden secrets to spark the interest of any prospective resident. If you live here, there are plenty of local societies and community groups to join.
