Kings Newmarket is a truly magnificent Grade II listed building with a very long and colourful history dating back to the 17th Century. Originally occupying the site of the ‘Griffin Inn’, Kings Newmarket was purchased by King James I as his racing palace. King Charles I later rebuilt the palace at great expense, with the finest cut stone much of which still stands today, it is a truly beautiful building.

Documents also tell of a meeting in the garden between Charles I and Oliver Cromwell. Charles refused to sign Cromwell’s ‘puppet king’ bill resulting in the break out ofkings newmarket the English Civil War soon after.

Well that’s your history lesson for today , check out the Kings website for more information.
