Carlisle Racecourse

Carlisle Racecourse


Adele Bayman

It is a large place that has lots of different areas. It has several cafes and small shops. On race days there are lots of extras like stalls, fairground rides, face painting and lots of other activities, there are concerts as well during the summer after the races have finished. It is suitable for all ages

there are lots of toilets and easy disabled access.

adults cost £14.00 but children under 16 are free.

I had a really good time watching all the horses and trying to guess who was going to win. It was quite busy but the cheering crowds were really exciting. Carlisle is really close with its castle and shopping also Gretna Gateway is not too far away.
