Worcester Racecourse provides an accessible environment for all our racegoers; including the elderly, people with accessible needs and those with young children. Where possible, we are happy to make special arrangements to assist with any queries, both in advance and on a race day.
For accessibility needs or those with limited mobility, we recommend booking the County Enclosure as this is where our accessible facilities are located.
Within the County Enclosure, we have a lift to all floors including the Croft Suite on the first floor which offers informal self-service dining to all County Enclosure ticket holders (with the exception of Ladies Day) and to the Severn Restaurant on the second floor which offers a reserved table for the day and three-course fine dining meal. The bar within the Grandstand in the County Enclosure is fully accessible for wheelchair users, located on the ground floor of the main grandstand building.
Accessible parking is available within our main Centre Course car park (postcode WR1 3EH) for Blue Badge holders, please ask one of our raceday stewards who will direct you to the designated parking area.
Personal Assistants will receive free admission to the racecourse when accompanying a paying guest with accessibility needs.
Personal Assistant tickets can be claimed by bringing in proof of accessible needs on the day of racing e.g. a Blue Badge (with accompanying photo ID), Disability Living Allowance, Personal Independence Payment or signed letter from GP (with accompanying photo ID). You will need to buy a full price ticket first either online or on the day and then speak to a member of staff on the turnstiles about claiming your free personal assistant badge.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org at least 24 hours in advance with your name and details of the fixture you wish to attend to arrange these tickets.
Gents' and Ladies accessible toilets are available on the ground floor of the Grandstand within the County Enclosure for radar key holders, and there is also a accessible cubicle on the Centre Course concourse.
There is a designated trackside wheelchair viewing ramp beside the rails of the home straight, which is accessible for County Enclosure visitors. The viewing ramp is manned by security and only accessible to guests needing accessible viewing areas.
We do not offer any accessible facilities within this enclosure and would not advise booking tickets for this enclosure if you have accessibility needs or have limited mobility. The Centre Course Bar is only accessible via steps, therefore, is not suitable for wheelchair users. The surface of the Centre Course Enclosure is mainly grass and uneven concrete.
The Picnic Car Park is located at the far end of the Centre Course Enclosure, which is a distance away from the main facilities (betting facilities, toilets and food/drink outlets). Again this area may not be suitable for anyone with limited mobility or for guests that require a wheelchair.
