More information about Alcester


The small market town of Alcester, situated in the county of Warwickshire, England, is located on the River Arrow about 9 miles northwest of the city of Stratford-upon-Avon. Alcester is a humble but quaint town with a population of nearly 8,000 and a rich history dating back to the Iron Age. The town appears to have been part of an ancient network of roads and is known to have pre-dated the Roman occupation of Britain from AD 43 to AD 410.

Today, the area is known for its connections with the car industry, the finance industry and motorsport. In this article, we will take a closer look at how and why Alcester has become prominent in these industries, as well as at some of the other key demographics of the town and its residents.

The Car Industry

The car industry has always been closely associated with Alcester since the town's motor-trade first began taking off in the 1920s. Local residents were astute businessmen and shrewd investors, who spotted an opportunity to build a successful business by making the most of the area's good connectivity and proximity to Birmingham.

In the 1940s, AlcesterCar Centre was established by pioneering local entrepreneurs. This business quickly flourished and by the 1950s, it had become one of the largest car retail operators in the Midlands. This success continued for decades, and as a result, Alcester became a hub for buying and selling cars. Today, the town still has a thriving second-hand car market and is known for its car dealerships, garages and workshops.

The Finance Industry

The finance industry has always had a close link with Alcester, with a number of banks, finance companies and financial services businesses based in the town or in the surrounding area. Within the town centre, you will find a range of banks, including Barclays, Lloyds, NatWest and RBS, as well as two building societies, two independent finance companies and a number of insurance and financial services businesses.

This cluster of finance-related businesses has made Alcester a prime location for financial companies and as a result, the town has become home to many skilled professionals in accounting, banking, investment, regulation and compliance. The town also established its own stock exchange in the 1990s and has since become a respected centre of finance and capital markets in the region.


Alcester is also strongly associated with motorsport, primarily because of its close proximity to Silverstone, the home of the British Grand Prix. It is believed that the town has welcomed teams and drivers from international Formula One (F1) teams for decades, which has made it an important part of the motorsport community in Britain.

Additionally, a number of successful car racing events have been hosted at the AlcesterSpeedway in recent years, which has attracted drivers from around the country. This track, located near the town centre, was built in the mid-1980s and is seen as a key venue for local drivers.


In terms of the demographic of the town's residents, Alcester has a population of approximately 8,000. The population has remained largely static since the early 2000s, with the majority of the population falling in the middle to older age brackets. The gender split of the population is roughly 50/50, with 46.3% female and 53.7% male.

In terms of ethnicity, the breakdown of Alcester's population is 95.4% White British, 1.9% White Other, 1.0% Asian, 0.2% Black, 0.2 Mixed race, 0.1% Chinese and 0.2% Other. The highest rate of unemployment in the town is well below the national average, at 0.7%, suggesting that the local job market is robust.


Alcester is a humble market town with a rich history and a unique character. Its economy has been built on a foundation of the car industry, the finance industry and motorsport, all of which continue to be important sectors of the local economy to this day. At the same time, the town is home to a diverse population, which has helped to shape Alcester's culture, identity and overall character.
