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.

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.


Latest Going Report:

Tuesday 26th August.

The going is "not important at the moment" - but the track is in great condition, having been put to bed for the Winter.
