Against the backdrop of the beautiful English Lake District, Cartmel Races rekindles the spirit of the original steeplechases. Large crowds descend on the centre of the racecourse for picnics and parties while the horses race around the outside.In 2015 the racecourse is scheduled to host eight days racing, starting on the traditional Whit Monday Holiday at the end of May. There will be four 2-day meetings, one in each of the four Summer months: May, June, July and August. When we're not racing, the Louis Roederer Restaurant, located in the grandstand, makes an excellent venue for private functions, meetings and events. The surrounding parkland is regularly used by Clubs and Associations for camping rallies - for more information, go to our non-racing events page.
While all the half-price tickets have been snapped up for Bank Holday Monday 25th May, Saturday 18th July, Saturday 29th August and Bank Holiday Monday 31st August, there are still a few available for the other four days - including both days of the new June meeting (Friday 26th and Sunday 28th).
Tickets for all days can also be purchased in advance - at a discount of £2 compared to the normal on-the-day price.
