Newmarket, England became Lexington’s fourth Sister City in 2003. Newmarket is the “Headquarters and Home of British Racing,” as well as a thriving market town. With some 3,000 horses in training within the boundaries, and some of the country’s most important thoroughbred studs just a stone’s throw from the town centre, it is truly the centre of the Sport of Kings. Newmarket is located on the Suffolk/Cambridgshire borders, 12 miles from Cambridge, home of the world famous university, and only 60 miles from the city of London. Visiting Newmarket and the beautiful Forest Heath area in East Anglia, you’ll experience not only worldclass horse racing, but also art museums, extraordinary Cathedrals, Britain’s largest lowland pine forest and welcoming market towns.
