We almost fell into this place by accident as we were trying to avoid the rain but what a gem! It had been a coffee house owned by the Cadburys but is now run as a heritage centre by volunteers. It has some excellent displays across time and also some very good architectural features. Free entry!

This museum is not open every day as it is run by volunteers but it is, I think one of the most interesting places to visit in Worcester. It is a 16th century timber framed building standing in Worcester's best preserved street. It has been used for many purposes over its five hundred year life amongst which are as a... More

Sat on the historic thoroughfare in Worcester, this lovely old Tudor building boasts a typical timber frame construction, leaded windows and decorated plaster ceilings.

This building is not open every day. It contains exhibitions that tell visitors about the history of the house and of Worcester itself. It is only small and there is not much period furniture in the house but it is informative and does have a lovely original Tutor ceiling in one of the upstairs rooms.

This is solely run by volunteers and is free to enter, all they ask is a small donation towards upkeep. It has lots of information inside and is so interesting. I took my grandparents when they visited and they also really enjoyed it, although there are lots of stairs. the staff are lovely and they are always chatting to you... More
