In 1902 Berwick Rangers and Worcester Rovers football clubs amalgamated taking the present name of Worcester City F.C. playing on an enclosed area of the racecourse called Severn Terrace (behind the present Swan Theatre) until the start of the 1905 season.The course is laid out as an oval circuit of about 13 furlongs in length and situated by the east bank of the River Severn and the north side of Worcester Bridge.During the 2007 floods, the racecourse was inundated and all the fixtures after June 30 had to be cancelled.13 Fur = Approximately 2,615.2metres

  • Beautiful place, a great thing to do in the summer is cycle to the camp on the day a hot air balloon is going up. Personally, I would not get paid to go up one of those damn things. But they are spectacular to watch take off, and seeing the passengers embark on such a valiant journey is great fun (unless your actually going on one, for that I admire your bravery). And yes it is true, I can beat a horse in a race...well in my car at least! - Scahboodal
  • Lovely day out on Oct 19th, but a total nightmare getting out from the car park. It took 52 minutes to get as far as the road outside of the course.
  • Good day out but could do with a lick of paint here and there. But for the overall fun factor it does the job and is a good craic when the sun is out.
  • Gets flooded a lot. But nice track. They normally leave the gate open So people can relax on the grass or run alongside the track
  • Went here for ladies day on my stag do and it was a really good day out. Good atmosphere plenty to eat and drink great time.
