2022 Fixtures

We are delighted to announce our fixtures for 2022 have now been confirmed as below.

Subscribe to our mailing list to be the first in the know about all tickets and packages.

** We are super happy to announce two new ticket types on sale - Fixture Tickets, which offer a saving when you purchase a ticket to cover all days within a fixture - so the three days of our first fixture for example. Great if you are visiting on holiday and know you want to come to all days!

Plus, a Season Ticket which gains access to the full season for two adults (plus any children 17 and under are free) - this ticket can be shared with others (not like an annual membership where we take individual details). This is a fabulous option if you have a holiday home/guest house/hotel/caravan and would like to include entry to the races for your guests.

When you are ready to book

please use the 'Book Now' button at the top right of the page.

See you soon!

The long tradition of racing at Cartmel was started by the monks from Cartmel Priory in the 12th Century.
The Whit Holiday Races have been a feature of the Racing Calendar since 1856 and there are now nine race days to enjoy each year at Cartmel, set against the backdrop of the beautiful Lakeland fells.
