Our Top Things to do in Worcester
Planning on staying at one of the top hotels in Worcester and looking for interesting activities to fill your days? We have pulled together a list of our top things to do in Worcester ahead of your stay, so you don’t have to.
Place Your Bets!
Take a punt on your favourite foal at Worcester Race Course. Host to a range of events throughout the year – from The Big Macmillan Race Day and Coffee Morning to the Diva Wedding Fayre and festive parties at the end of year – some might say that the racecourse is Worcester’s “mane” attraction.
Play Another Round
Open to the public and members alike, Bransford Golf Club offers a range of golf days although, as it is connected to one of the most welcoming, family run hotels in Worcester, why not make a weekend out of it and stay the night? There really is no better way to relax on a warm afternoon than with a round or two with friends and a cold drink in the club house.
From Dirty Dancing to Freddie Mercury tribute acts to adaptations of The Canterbury Tales and renditions of Hamlet, it is safe to say The Swan Theatre has something for everyone staying at Worcester hotels over the coming months.
To Market, To Market
Worcester’s general and Sunday Markets are the place to go to buy fresh food and bespoke jewellery. Later in the year, however, people will travel from far and wide to visit the Victorian Christmas Fayre, where they enjoy festive foods and seasonal frolics. If you are thinking of travelling to the Christmas Fayre this year, stay with us to ensure you enjoy your weekend in luxury.
There’s nothing better than spending the afternoon browsing a gallery, either alone or with friends, and Worcester Art Gallery and Museum is no exception to this rule. Renowned for its collections of paintings, sculpture and new media, explore the works of Monet, Sargent and Whistler before stopping for a bite to eat at the gallery café.
Culture Vultures at Croome
With its rich history and typically English landscape, a trip to Croome, a fantastic National Trust property, is the perfect day out for all the family. From Grayson Perry Tapestry Lectures to summer markets and free open days, we promise a trip to Croome will not disappoint.
A Wheelie Great Festival
If you like to don your leathers and head out on the open road, then the Shelsley Walsh Bike Festival – featuring live music, great food and a chance to enter ‘Paddock Specials’, including ‘World’s Fastest Shopping Trolley’ and ‘World’s Fastest Monowheel’ competitions, it’s the Worcester event for you.
Whether you are in town on a hen weekend or simply need to take some time to yourself, why not relax with a tempting treatment at Bank House’s Malvern View Spa? With a wonderful range of Temple Spa treatments which are also available to buy, you won’t regret indulging in some pampering on an afternoon in Worcester.
If you are planning on spending a weekend ‘staycation’ at one of a number of Worcester hotels, then we hope this guide will help you to make the most out of your visit.
