Recently redeveloped Carlisle is a tough dual-purpose racetrack perched overlooking the Cumbrian town. Understandably it can get a touch chilly in the winter months, but many a decent novice chaser or hurdler has been seen in these parts before heading onwards and upwards.
In the summer the nearby Lake District has its own attractions, but in June racegoers can come looking for some competitive action and get it in the shape of two old, traditional races - the Carlisle Bell and Cumberland Plate.

Course - Flat:
A pear-shaped course of just over a mile and a half in extent. The track is galloping in nature and provides a stiff test of stamina.
Course - Jump:
A right-handed circuit of a mile and five furlongs. The course is very undulating with a steep climb to the finishing line meaning the premium is always placed on stamina.
The racecourse is two miles south west of the town, with road access via the M6 (junction 42), the A69 from the north east or the A595/A596 for those travelling from the west.
To Carlisle station. A bus service between the station and the racecourse is in operation on race days.
Carlisle airport is approximately eight miles away. Helicopter landing at the course by prior arrangement only.
