It's a lovely place, great building and a really atmospheric place to walk around. Having said that it's trying to play on Magna Carta, If you want Magna Carta go to Lincoln, the Castle has a copy and to be honest the cathedral is better. Would be better to play to it's own strengths with the famous or is that... More

Free admission with a box inside for donations. The architecture is fantastic also the stained glass windows. After a walk by the river this is a great place to spend some quiet time.

One of England's great cathedrals with stunning architecture, stained glass, tombs etc. You just marvel at the age of the place and how it was build all that time ago with relatively simple tools. A good café on site and not far to walk down to the river for a pleasant amble.

I have lived in the area for most of my life but never entered the cathedral. I have been to Malta and looked at beautiful examples, St Pauls, York minster but did not realise what a gem we have on our doorstep. It is a must...I went in on a photography course and have been back since to take another... More

Worcester Cathedral is one of the most interesting places in Worcester, if you go make sure to have a guided tour as there are lots of things you wouldn't see if you walked round on your own and the guides are very knowledgeable. The facilities are great and there is a lovely café there too.

What a joy to have such a beautiful cathedral in the city. Even more enjoyable as my children's school sang there Christmas carols there last year, just magical.

While staying in Worcestershire for a couple of days we decided to visit the cathedral, what a very interesting place to visit, it is free to enter which is very rare and the guides are all volunteer, but if you wanted a guided tour you do have to pay for that and also if you want to take photos, our...

The architecture is fantastic, the guides excellent, the workmanship is spectacular: this is a stunning place to visit. There is a quiet place for prayer and reflection. The coffee shop was inexpensive, good and welcoming.(and the facilities are clean and modern). We spent much longer here than anticipated, as the cathedral was so interesting. It is a sight not to...

Very nice atmosphere in the Cathedral. Beautiful stained glass windows, ceilings. New Organ cases very impressive. Cathedral choir very good - worth attending Evensong. A thoroughly impressive building.
