The Palace House Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run on the Rowley Mile at Newmarket over a distance of 5 furlongs (1,006 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late April or early May.

The event is named after Palace House, a famous building in Newmarket which is on the site of a royal residence of King Charles II. The Palace House Stakes was established in 1961, and it is usually run on the same day as the 2,000 Guineas Stakes.
