After the Races Relax and enjoy your winnings Your entertainment doesn't have to finish with the last race. The bars will close 30 minutes after the last race and gates will close 30 minutes after this. There is a taxi rank directly opposite the racecourse and buses are available to take you back in to the city centre, don't leave it too late though, they have a tendancy to do a couple of runs and then head off into the city! Carlisle is a vibrant city with a range of bars and restaurants to suit everyone. Why not head to Devonshire Street where you will find a variety of wine and cocktail bars to suit everyone.
