Worcester Racecourse is situated by the side of the River Severn, just five minutes walk from the City Centre, within easy reach of local rail links.
Racing has taken place at the Pitchcroft course, close to the banks of the River Severn, since at least 1718, making Worcester one of the oldest racecourses in Britain. By the middle of the
nineteenth century, several important races had become well established at the course, including the Worcester Stakes and the Gold Cup.
Worcester Racecourse, with its picturesque tree-lined track and unique position nestling on the banks of the River Severn, offers a great day out for all the
You can take advantage of themed racedays which include Countryside Alliance day, family fun day with Noddy and Big Ears, Ladies Day and race meetings ranging from evenings to midweek
The course has undergone many changes, including the layout in 1880 of a new track that featured a now long-defunct figure-of-eight course. Flat racing was discontinued in 1966, but the
National Hunt meetings continued to provide competitive racing with large fields. Summer jumping started at the course in 1995 as a result of winter fixtures being lost to flooding.
