Interested in horse racing, horse breeding, or simply horses in general? Then a visit to the National Stud is a must! After all, it’s the only commercial stud farm in the UK open to the public.

The best way to explore the beautiful 500-acre National Stud farm is on a relaxing coach tour, which gives you an inside look into the workings of the horse breeding industry. Want to know more? The National Stud Tours are led by a horse specialist, who’s always happy to answer your questions.

Bring your camera along - the stunning thoroughbred stallions definitely deserve a snap! Getting close to the beautiful large horses always gets the kids excited. However, if there’s one thing children love more than animals, it’s baby animals. So the real highlight of the National Stud tour has to be the adorable newborn foals.
