Newmarket Racecourses description

Extra Large (300+)

An impressive, flexible, stylish and unique conference and events venue in the heart of East Anglia.

For over 350 years Newmarket Racecourses has been synonymous with horse racing's classic events, including the prestigious QIPCO Guineas Festival and the popular Moët and Chandon July Festival, both attracting over 45,000 guests.

Though the Rowley Mile is famous for its world class racing, the Millennium Grandstand, opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 2000, is an equally impressive venue for non-racing events and has hosted hundreds of successful conferences and exhibitions over the years.

With a stunning backdrop of the Heath the grandstand is situated at the heart of the racecourse and the views are really what makes this such a special place. It is a location which lends itself to any event and always offers a very special sense of occasion, thanks to the racecourse environment and its inextricable links to sporting excellence and royal history.

Situated just a few miles from Cambridge, the Rowley Mile benefits from swift and easy access thanks to its proximity to the A11 and A14. There is also a train station on the doorstep, with easy links to both London and the North of England.

The picturesque site offers modern indoor facilities, flexible meeting rooms, stylish banqueting suites, spacious exhibition halls, beautiful outdoor spaces and ample free parking.

It is available for large scale conferences for up to 500 delegates, consumer and trade exhibitions, business meetings, interactive team building events, product launches, private parties - and in December, our renowned Christmas party nights.
We have a highly experienced Conference and Events team who will help plan and accommodate your event needs to the highest level. Working with our trusted suppliers and our in-house catering team we will ensure your experience of hosting an event at Newmarket Racecourses is of exceptional quality.
