we stopped here on a visit to Worcester - it is very easy to find and has plenty of good parking. Staff were very welcoming and the shop has some lovely items to purchase. They don't have a separate café, but there is a coffee machine in the corner of the shop with tables and chairs and there are cakes... More

Good for people who are fans of Elgar / classical music. The kids were a bit bored but it was interesting for adults

Visited on a cold November day, so not the best to appreciate the lovely garden. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We took the audio tour and it gave a good insight into life of the man and the artifacts in the cottage. The stairs in the cottage were very steep and my elderly father could not manage... More

We've been here twice but we've always run out of time to see everything, we're due to return soon. What a fascinating man Elgar was.

On a glorious very warm autumn day, I arrived here by bus from Worcester bus station with a mile or so walk from the nearest bus stop. There is a bus that drops you outside but that would have only given me 2 1/2 hours here and I thought I might need longer. To look and listen to everything properly... More

We arrived 10minutes early as we hadn't realized the museum didn't open until 11am. However the very friendly woman at the front desk saw us at the door and let us in so we started with a cup of coffee in the foyer. The museum consists of 2 parts - a small modern buiding with exhibits and the actual Elgar... More

A lovely collection of memorabilia of Elgar's life and works. Well worth spending a couple of hours looking and listening.
