Disabled Racegoers - Cartmel Racecourse

Disabled Racegoers

We try to ensure that all racegoers at Cartmel are parked according to their needs. We therefore provide "disabled" parking areas in both enclosures close to the finishing straight. These areas are relatively flat and grassy - making wheelchair access easier than most other areas of the racecourse.

There are a limited number of disabled parking spaces in the paddock enclosure which are available to pre-book by calling the racecourse office with your car registration and disabled blue badge number.

These spaces will be charged at £6 per car per day which is payable at time of booking over the phone with a credit/debit card. You will then be sent a hanger to display in your rear view mirror. Please note that if you have not arrived and taken your parking space by one hour before the first race then your parking space may be allocated to someone else and your payment forfeited. Your payment will be refunded in full if you cancel by calling the office on 015395 36340, 1 day before the race day. If all the places are fully booked then we shall take your details and put you on the reserve list so that when you arrive the stewards can do their best to park you in the most convenient place possible.

The racecourse has relatively few permanent facilities and much of the raceday infrastructure consists of temporary marquees. However, we can provide wheelchair access to a special viewing platform high on the Grandstand via the lift at the back of the Grandstand. All users of this facility must have a dedicated carer with them at all times in case of an emergency evacuation.
Aid dogs are welcome.
