The county’s market towns have given rise to a number of Food and Drink Festivals and Events and there are numerous Arts and Craft Centres where you can see  craftsmen involved in glass blowing, silk making, pottery and painting.

The Hive, Worcester’s joint University and Public Library is also worth a visit, located in a new iconic building  overlooking the River Severn which is a showcase for sustainability and houses the County’s archive and archaeology.
