Cartmel Priory


"One of the North's finest ecclesiastical buildings"

The village of Cartmel, grew up around this twelfth century Priory church which, according to legend, was built between two parallel streams in response to a ’heavenly voice’.

Cartmel Races



"Small Racecourse of the Year in the North"

Racing at Cartmel dates back to 1856, but it is almost certain that racing has taken place here since at least the middle of the fifteenth century when monks of the nearby priory entertained themselves by organising 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. Such qualities ensure that visitors return year on year and have given the racecourse attendances to match the much larger venues.
