The National Horseracing Museum is located in the historic heart of Newmarket, the UK’s racing capital. It includes Palace House, the last surviving remnants of Charles ll’s palace, the Grade II listed Trainer’s House, the King’s Yard, the Rothschild Yard, an Olympic-sized arena, a working blacksmith’s forge and paddocks.
The historic buildings present a beautiful setting for a collection reflecting the fascinating history and science of horseracing from its earliest origins to the present day. Palace House is home to the British Sporting Art Trust’s unique collection.
The Rothschild Yard is home to the Retraining of Racehorses charity (RoR), enabling visitors to meet former racehorses being trained for life beyond the track.

Thank you for considering supporting the National Horseracing Museum’s Legacy Scheme.
Jim Joel was an outstandingly successful racehorse owner and breeder, winning the Derby on three occasions. He also won the Grand National in 1987.
Shortly before he died in 1992, Jim Joel established a charitable foundation, The Childwick Trust. Thanks to the generosity of this Trust, the National Horseracing Museum has received a donation enabling us to set up the Jim Joel Legacy Scheme in recognition of Mr Joel’s contribution to UK racing.
Leaving a legacy to the National Horseracing Museum acknowledges the enjoyment the museum provides for so many, and makes a lasting different to the future of the collection.
