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!

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.

Carlisle racecourse was used as start finish point for a charity cycle ride I took part in. The facilities were great as were the staff. The catering was excellent considering they had over 100 hungry cyclists to feed. I'd definitely consider visiting during the races.

I did see dogs there. usual rules apply. on a lease and keep away from the paddock/ring. website or a call to the course should confirm.
