The National Stud

The National Stud opened its gates to the public for the first time in the mid 1970s. To this day the Stud remains the only commercial stud farm in the UK allowing individuals, small groups and large parties the chance to see behind the scenes of a working thoroughbred stud farm. Guided tours last 90 minutes and are on foot and via mini-bus.

This 500-acre stud farm has a wonderful history and is home to resident stallions, retired National Hunt legends and every year serves as the birthplace for the next generation of potential champions. Come and meet the foals and see if you can spot the next big superstar!
Public Guided Tours are available every Friday, Saturday and Sunday or private tours can be arranged on a date of your choice. Priced at £15 per person or £35 for a family. Public tours run from mid-February to end of October although private tours can be booked at anytime of the year.
