The gem of Worcester

Recently went for a tour of the library (didn't even know it was there) and it was a fantastic experience. I'd encourage everyone to go.

.The tour is a very good introduction to the Cathedral and lasted about 1 hour 30 mins the day I went. The tower climb is broken up by a landing about half way up and a room with details of bell ringing. Chairs are available !! Both the tour and the tower are worth the small fees and made the...

The actual building is magnificent of course but there is so much of interest to see that we spent much longer than anticipated absorbing all the historical and architectural details. It is the most fascinating of all the English cathedrals I have so far visited and we were surprised to see the tomb of King John. There is no set... More

This is one of the great cathedrals of England. It is a beautiful building inside and out. While we were there two men were mopping down the nave floor, it was naturally taped off, and the door at the far end was open allowing sunlight onto the marble. When they had finished the tapes stayed up until the floor had... More

How I wish I'd had more time to spend in this temple... Although the most remarkable aspects are perhaps architectural --the scale and height of the building, there are so many elements to highlight that I don't know where to start. A pulpit in red, green and white marble, King John's Tomb, Arthur Prince of Wales's Crypt, the stained glass... More

Great place for some peace and tranquillity in the heart of the city, the trip up the tower is well worth doing for stunning views, but only for able-bodied people!

What an amazing building. Fantasic architecture and what craftmanship. It holds the tomb of Kind John (of the Magna Carter) amongst other famous people from history. Even not being a history buff I thoroughly enjoyed soaking up a 1000 years of it. You must visit...

We had a guided tour, which was part of the Festival activities. Really interesting and our guide, Andrew, was fascinating and knowledgeable. Can really recommend this.
