Whether you’re a devoted horse-racing fan or just a lover of beautiful English towns, Newmarket is sure to appeal. Close to Cambridge and Ely as well as Bury St Edmunds, this is the perfect place from which to explore this popular region.
Newmarket has been associated with horses and racing since King James 1 arrived in 1605 and declared Newmarket the second capital of England. Successive royal family members came to appreciate the flat land as an ideal location for galloping their horses, King Charles 1 in particular. He visited the town regularly bringing with him a strong love of horses and racing, and it was he who commissioned the first grandstand on Newmarket Heath. Thus the Sport of Kings was born with Britains’s first race, The Town Plate, in which Charles 11 rode his own horse and won! Surprise, surprise. Newmarket hasn’t looked back since.
