How To Purchase Tickets

There are two types of tickets at Cartmel: Paddock Enclosure and Course Enclosure.  A description of each enclosure is given below to help you make your ticket choice.  Tickets for each race day can be purchased upon arrival at the racecourse.  However, we strongly encourage you to purchase tickets in advance.
