Let us all look forward to 2021, when hopefully we can all be together again.

We have something totally new for you - GIFT VOUCHERS. Treat yourself or a loved one to something special at Cartmel Races, from a glass of champagne to a seat in our beautiful race day restaurant. Visit the 'Book Now' section.

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.
