A student-friendly city

Worcester is a great place to shop and take part in all kinds of sport


Worcester's compact city centre is largely pedestrianised and offers a unique, traffic-free ambience.

You can find all the leading shops on the high street as well as designer labels, independent boutiques, retro and second hand stores- all within easy walking distance from the campus.

Eating and drinking

Whether you fancy a quiet drink, a lazy lunch with friends or dancing into the small hours, Worcester has the right venue for you. With 100 or more places to eat and drink in the town centre, including restaurants, ancient pubs and modern coffee shops, there’s plenty of choice for a study break.

The perfect night out

Worcester’s clubs and drinking places cater for every taste, from student haunts and trendy wine and cocktail bars to friendly traditional pubs.  The city centre has lots of clubs with everything from soul funk nights to dance, indie and hip-hop.

City of sport

Worcester is also a city for sport and whether you’re a keen competitor or an avid spectator, you’ll find plenty going on.  Worcester teams compete in top level rowing, basketball, rugby union and cricket. Premier League football is close by in Birmingham and the Black Country.
