So, why come to Cartmel Racecourse?

We offer great, competitive Jumps racing in the beautiful Cartmel Valley. Situated right in Cartmel village – home to amazing restaurants, bars and lovely independent shops. A race day like no other; bring your own furniture, food and drink and relax in to a big garden party, whilst the horses thunder past. We have a great DJ playing each day, with other entertainment – let’s not forget the funfair! There are food and drink concessions on site, alongside plenty of facilities. A day at Cartmel racecourse is about family, fun and friends having a good time. We are not like other tracks, we are relaxed and encourage you to set up a spot and enjoy your day, you can even bring a barbeque!

We are lucky to welcome regular Cartmel Friends, who return over many years and its always brilliant to see newcomers with their friends and family ready to enjoy a great day out.

Looking forward to seeing you.
