Racing is the 'Sport of Kings' and you can experience the thrill of the races and a unique insight behind the scenes on this special break for lovers of horses and beautiful countryside alike. We also include a visit to Cambridge.

Day 1: Depart from your home area in the morning travelling to Cambridge, arriving late afternoon at the BW Cambridge Bar Hill Hotel. 2 nights stay - dinner, bed & breakfast. On arrival we have tea/coffee and biscuits.

Day 2: This morning we head for Newmarket, home of horse racing. Our guide will take us to the Gallops and listen to the hoof beats, show us around a trainer's yard, and visit the National Stud. This is a fascinating and informative visit, even for those not into horse racing. We visit the yard of a trainer and see the daily working and a behind the scenes look at a real training stable, and we learn how a horse progresses from training field to racetrack.

We also have chance to get up close and personal with the horses. On the Gallops we will see lots of horses working over 2500 acres of Jockey Club land. We see the variety in gallops - hills, surface, and length. At the National Stud we see top stallions, mares and foals taking their first steps to becoming a racehorse.

From here we are off to Newmarket racecourse for Race Day. We have time for lunch and to enjoy the exciting atmosphere. As you cheer your favourite towards the winning post. During our visit we have included Afternoon Tea at the Races, later we return to the hotel to hopefully celebrate a successful day.

Day 3: After breakfast our destination today is the University City of Cambridge. Leaving the hotel, we drive to Cambridge for a short visit before heading home.
