Worcester

This is a photo of listed building number

Pronounced ‘wooster’, this city on the banks of the River Severn is dominated by its fabulous 12th century cathedral and is suitably steeped in history. Exploring the cathedral is a must – so much history contained in one place.

Take a guided walk to see the sights including cobbled streets and laneways, visit Greyfriars House & Garden, a preserved medieval merchant’s house.

Worcester is also a favourite shopping centre with independents plus high street brands. More claims to fame include the iconic Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce and Royal Worcester porcelain – visit the Museum of Royal Worcester housing over 10,000 pieces dating from 1751.

Music-lovers head for Huntingdon Hall, Worcester’s premier live music venue. The former Countess of Huntingdon’s Chapel is a leading venue for folk music, comedy, entertainment, classical music, jazz and blues as well as spoken word events.
