Have been to mid-week evening and Sunday afternoon meetings, enjoyed both, but preferred quieter evening with less than 1000 there, as opposed to thousands on a family fun/Sunday. Relaxed atmosphere and easy access to bars/toilets/bookies. Seating in grandstand. Good VFM...

I love to walk round the racecourse we start out going past the theatre and walk past the gates and boathouse and then comes the best bit walking back alongside the river it is beautiful walking under the trees seeing swans and the different types of boats going past. There are lots of seats if you want to stay awhile.... More

We had a nice day at Worcester Races - mid week, nice weather and not too busy. The lady at the gate was welcoming and the setting on the edge of town and right by the river lovely. Things went a bit awry when I tried to buy us a drink. The staff seemed more interested in either having a)... More

Went horse racing for the first time ever here as part of a gift experience brought for my husbands birthday, Absolutely loved it. We lost of course but it didn't matter. All the staff were very helpful when they found out we were novices and gave us advice on what to do and we even had a mini talk and... More

There's not much to the course and I certainly wouldn't visit again in a hurry. The main enclosure is fairly run down and the course enclosure was very overpriced for what is in, especially in comparison to the likes of York, where £7 would get you in to much nicer conditions.

Visited an afternoon race today to celebrate my fathers birthday. Everyone at the racecourse made it a really special day. Can't thank them enough. A really wonderful memorable day.

Our coachload attended this venue on Ladies Day 2014 travelling from the northwest, dont bother! There are far many better quality courses much closer, think Doncaster, Thisk, Haydock etc. £20 in the county stands which should have been classed as Tattersalls, and the beer choices eugggh! Fosters, Strongbow, or a crappy bitter at £4 a pop! and if it had... More

just returned from the years first meeting here. Truly disappointing, terrible facilities, parking in the middle of the course!? The food on offer was disgusting and the drinks overpriced. The only saving grace was a visit to the Restaurant and Bar over the road, Detroits.
