In recent years Carlisle Racecourse has fast become one of the premier attractions in the region, with the extensive redevelopment of existing facilities and the introduction of various others, PLUS, a significant increase in race day visitors and not forgetting its convenient location, extensive free parking and 250 acres of parkland! Carlisle Racecourse really is the perfect venue for any event, however large or small.

I have been many times for different occasions and even in the pouring rain I have enjoyed every moment. Great atmosphere and people you cant help but caught up in the excitement of the racing even if your a first timer.

There was live music on the night, can't remember the name of the duo but they were great. I would recommend this establishment to friends and family or people that are planning to... More

Lots of facilities including bars, restaurants and toilets. A good day out for racegoers. Ample free parking opposite the course but it's on grass which could be dodgy after heavy rain.
