Worcester

Worcester is a beautiful Cathedral and University City with a fascinating history of industry, a wealth of interesting architecture, top class sports teams and venues, an unrivalled selection of high street names and independent boutiques and a vibrant programme of events.

So whether visiting with friends, a family –young or old, there really is something for everyone.

The city is best known for its magnificent Cathedral but is also famous for the world renowned Worcester Porcelain, the piquant Worcestershire Sauce and the most picturesque cricket ground in the country.

Explore The Commandery to learn about our important role in the English Civil War. See a contemporary exhibition at the City Art Gallery and admire the half-timbered buildings in Friar Street. These include Greyfriars’ House & Garden and the 500 year old Tudor House.

If you prefer to join a guided tour around the city, walks are available every day, morning and evening, from the Guildhall which in its own right is a truly beautiful building dating back to 1721.

With a host of restaurants, café’s as well as the splendid riverside, Worcester really is a great place to spend the day exploring.
