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.

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.
