National Stud Tour
Go behind the scenes at a working thoroughbred stud farm and meet the stallions, mares and foals. Tours of The National Stud last approximately 90 minutes and are taken by coach and on foot. The tours explore this beautiful 500-acre site and focus on introducing visitors to the history and purpose of The National Stud as a commercial Thoroughbred breeding operation. The National Stud is a working commercial stud farm, so the physical content of the tours varies throughout the year, depending on the season and the activities happening on the stud when you visit.
Price is £11.00 per person (Child/Adult/Senior), children under 5 are free of charge and do not need to be included in the booking process.
