After The Races

Things to do when the racing finishes

Whether it's dancing and cocktails or something more sedate, the fun doesn't have to stop when the last horse goes past the finishing post.

Après racing at Newmarket Racecourses

Don't rush off after the last race. Delay that journey home and enjoy après racing, Newmarket's official after party. Come to one of our feature meetings (The Guineas, The July Festival, Dubai Future Festival)* and enjoy fantastic music, cocktails and dancing for two hours after the last race. Après racing is free to all racegoers and everyone is welcome to join in the fun.

Other suggestions for after racing

Newmarket town offers a wide variety of restaurants, pubs and bars so whether you're looking to have an intimate meal with friends and family or something a little livelier there's something to suit every budget. We're also ideally located within easy reach of Cambridge, Ely and Bury St Edmunds by car, bus or train.
