May events: Guineas Festival at Newmarket

Newmarket, Suffolk

Jump into the grandstand to watch Europe’s top racehorses compete for victory at Newmarket’s highly-anticipated racing event.

Part of the elite British Championship Series, the QIPCO Guineas Festival at Newmarket Racecourses is one of England's most unique sporting events. You’ll get to see some of Europe’s finest racehorses in action as they come thundering down the Rowley Mile, many of which go on to become regular champions at the likes of Royal Ascot.

The best way to experience the festival is to start your race day with Discover Newmarket’s tour of the world-famous Newmarket Gallops, where you will see some of the 3,000 racehorses exercising on 2,500 acres of Jockey Club Estates land.

Afterward, get a behind the scenes tour of a busy racing yard, meeting the stars of the future, before heading to the racecourse for a delicious lunch and a spectacular afternoon of first-class racing.

Newmarket Guineas 2019 takes place between 4-5 May; tickets and hospitality experiences are available via the website.
