Carlisle Racecourse

A gem in the North West

With a unique and modern atmosphere all of its own, Carlisle Racecourse offers some of the best racing in the country, backed by picturesque views of the Lake District. Our spacious exhibition, conference facilities and function rooms have been purpose built to offer a versatile space for every kind of event. With 250 acres of parkland to accommodate a range of outdoor activities, our venue hire options at Carlisle offer excellent value and an outstanding end result every time.

Carlisle Racecourse is nestled against the idyllic village of Blackwell in Cumbria,  in between the Scottish Borders and the Lake District. As well as excellent rail accessibility from both England and Scotland, we are just off Junction 42  of the M6 with ample free parking for delegates.
