Explore History & Heritage

Worcestershire is a great place to step back in time to a bygone era and cherish the delights of days gone by.

There are a great selection of Historic Houses and sites to explore across the county as well as various Museums depicting its history. There is a selection of churches scattered across Worcestershire telling of its religious history, one example being Great Witley Parish Church, with the most stunning interior of any Baroque church in England.

For those that prefer to soak up the scenery, you can take a journey on Britain’s premier steam railway, which provides some of the best riverside views in the country as it winds its way alongside the River Severn.

Worcester itself is a great picture of the old and the new: the city’s busy high street is situated only a short walk away from the Cathedral and the Commandery, where you can hear stories of inhabitants going back seven centuries.
