Newmarket, Suffolk
If you like horses, go to Newmarket ! There are two race courses, the Rowley Mile (which hosts two of
the British Classics) and the July Course. I prefer the Rowley Mile which now has a modern grandstand
and excellent facilities - and if you go there, walk out to the rails and look at the sky - it's huge !! In the
town there are plenty of pubs and restaurants, and also the
National Horse Racing Museum.
Newmarket, Bury Heath

Two postcards of horses being exercised on Bury Heath and Plantation Heath. The cards date from 1913 and 1914.
Old Postcard, Newmarket, July Course
This postcard of the July Course was mailed in 1903.
Newmarket, Rowley Mile Grandstand
The old grandstand on the Rowley Mile Course - this was demolished
in the late 1990s and replaced with a more modern structure with
excellent facilities - but for the ordinary racegoer, the view of the
racing is not as good.    
Compare this postcard with that above and note the changes - I
presume this card is much earlier.

census was 15,000 - greatly increased on race days !
