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 meeting at Cartmel will take place on the Whit-Bank Holiday at the end of May in 2014 - Saturday evening 24th May, Bank Holiday Monday 26th May and Wednesday 28th May. 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.
If you're planning a wedding in the near future, don't miss the Cartmel Wedding Fayre, staged in the fabulous Louis Roederer Restaurant on the first floor of the Grandstand between 1.00pm until 4.00pm on Sunday 30th March.
