Cartmel Racecourse

Racing at Cartmel dates back to 1856, but it is almost certain that racing has taken place here since the middle of the 15th century, when monks of the nearby priory entertained themselves by racing  on mules.  With its rich history and location on the Holker Estate, Cartmel offers a sense of uniqueness and charm unrivalled on the racing circuit.
