Worcester Racecourse is a great day out, so to make the most of your time with us we encourage arriving early. Gates open 2 hours before the first race and we typically have either between 6 to 8 races on each race day. Individual times for each fixture will vary so please check the relevant fixture page for the most up to date information.
On popular race days including Ladies Day and Family Fun Days we advise leaving extra time to get to and from the racecourse. We are a city centre racecourse so if you are travelling by car and the racing is finishing around rush hour please expect a delay leaving the racecourse.
There is no cash machine on site. The racecourse only accepts cashless payments across the site although bookmakers do still accept cash.
The nearest cash machine is located on Castle Street, a 5-minute walk from the Racecourse if you wish to pay bookmakers via this method.
We welcome picnics at selected dates within our Centre Course. Please note that alcohol is not permitted to be brought into the racecourse enclosures at any time. Alcohol and soft drinks are available with the enclosures from outdoor bars and concessions.
Race cards are an invaluable guide for your day at the races. They can be purchased for £3.50 from the race card kiosk which is located by the turnstiles in front of the main entrance to the County Enclosure, and lists the times of each race, the runners and riders, and also includes maps and other useful information. Race cards are also on sale inside the Centre Course beside the entrance turnstiles.
