    Worcester racecourse hosts around 20 horse race meetings a year with some themed days, ladies day, musical themes, kids fun days etc. Centre course and Grandstand enclosures are £6 and £12 respectively but I would advise paying a bit extra, £18 for a Premier Enclosure ticket especially if the weather is not too good. The Grandstand bar gets very crowded, you cannot see the racing from there and there is little other cover if it is raining.

    Equipment: Bring plenty of money and some luck I guess, and if you get a few winners like I did it's a cheap day out.

    County Cricket

    Worcestershire Cricket Club coat of arms

    Worcester’s county cricket ground is the perfect spot for sport lovers to relax with a picnic or a pint of beer - in between overs you can sit back and enjoy spectacular views of the cathedral across the river. The ground itself floods every winter as its part of Worcester's food plain.
    The 1st match in 2003 started on 18th April (Good Friday) against Hampshire, in glorious sunshine and finished in rain.
    There is a tradition that the 1st match of the summer tourists, of whatever country, play their opening match in 1st or 2nd week in May. In 2004 it was New Zealand and I anticipate that in 2005 it will be Australia

    Worcester County Cricket Club play at New Road, one of the most picturesque cricket grounds in the country.

    Although they are not now in the top division they have boasted some of the worlds most famous players over the years, including, Graham Hick and Ian Botham.

    Equipment: Eyes to watch the game, sunscreen hat and sunglasses in case it gets too hot as you will be out in the open for a long time.

    Canal and River

    Entrance to the Viking yard

    Wocester is at the intersection of the Worcester-Birmingham Canal and the Severn River. You can take a boat up or down the canal, and through a lock into the river and go up along another side of Worcester. You are not limited to doing narrowboating on the river - you can have a regular motor boat if you wish.

    Equipment: Viking Afloat is a narrowboat rental company that is in Worcester and will rent you a boat with all the facilities to live on board for a weekend or a week or ten days. Their boats are painted yellow and brown. We rented from another company, but we saw some of the Viking boats.

    Diglis Basin in 2002

    We did not visit Diglis Basin and do not know if this marina was even there when we were there. They did have boats moored in the basin
