The ancestral home of British horseracing, 270 years of classic British pedigree.

Royalty has walked these historic corridors, admired those very same equine masterpieces...

It’s not everyday that you get to stay at an exclusive members club, at the beating heart of the “sport of kings”. Indeed, Newmarket’s high street is an unlikely setting for this rarefied Georgian gem, but it stands, as it has stood, here nonetheless, since the early 1750s, when the Club founders met in the “Coffee Room” to place bets.

Everywhere you turn offers a fascinating insight in to the sport. Portraits of iconic horses by equine masters, including George Stubbs and Alfred Munnings. You may not be a horse-racing fan, but this, this is history animate, tradition, unflappable, in an age of quantum computing and AI. It’s hard not to come away charmed by this captivating time capsule of a club.

Not all horses are created equal. This one raises the bar. And clears it. You could call it a classic British institution.

Places to Visit

Newmarket Racecourse -

You cannot depart Rome without first seeing the Colloseum. And you cannot check out of The Jockey Club Rooms without having stopped by the Racecourse. Enjoy a day at the races at one of the big racing festivals, a post-race concert, or any one of 38 race days between April and November. And, whilst staying with us, take a 10 minute morning stroll to the gallops (watch the jockeys exercise the horses), and visit the unmissable National Horse Racing Museum at Palace House.
