Cartmel Races

Enjoy national hunt racing set against the backdrop of the beautiful English Lake District. With party crowds and a funfair, Cartmel rekindles the social gathering tradition of the original steeple to steeplechase.


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.
