Join us for National Hunt racing at one of Britain's oldest racecourses, where racing has been taking place on the banks of the River Severn since 1718. The Racecourse is situated at Pitchcroft, close to the heart of Worcester, one of the fastest growing cities in Europe. The fixture list covers 20 National Hunt meetings from April to November. We also offer a great opportunity to enjoy Corporate Hospitality in scenic surroundings, with the chance to back a winner whilst enjoying this thoroughbred package. The Club Members admission badge gives you full access to all public areas of the course, plus exclusive use of the Members' Lounge Bar on the first floor of the Grandstand and the Severn Viewing Restaurant on the top floor.
Witley court was once one of the most magnificent stately homes in the country. Though gutted by fire in 1938 its ruins are still spectacular, and are being lovingly restored by English heritage. The Parish Church, which is attached to the ruins, survived the fire, and so visitors can still enjoy the magnificent paintings. These have been described as the Sistine chapel of the north, and will take your breath away. The fountains, which were an integral part of the landscaped gardens, are also being restored. The largest fountain, representing Perseus and Andromeda, once shot water 120 feet upwards.
