One of the most impressive cathedrals in England and you don't have to pay to see it. John lackland, king of England and prince Arthur, brother of Henry VIII are buried here.

We spent two wonderful hours walking round the cathedral. Absolutely beautiful building with a wealth of history. Informative pamphlets placed near the most interesting features were really helpful and the cathedral guides were on hand to answer any questions. Definitely a 'must visit' while you are in Worcester
