Welcome to Cartmel Racecourse

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.

The next fixture in 2015 is the Betfair BBQ Meeting on Monday 20th July. Tickets will be available at the entrance and the advance booking service for this date is now closed. The remaining fixtures, for which the advance booking system is still open, are on 29th & 31st 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.
