Attended the children's Christmas carol service. The Cathedral was full with people standing around the sides and there was a lovely atmosphere. This is a fine building we think equal to other major Cities. Well heated and a good sound system for speakers so that everything could be clearly heard.

To me it was just another church, no real atmosphere, too many chairs stacked up along the walls, not as good as Lichfield, York or Durham.

Worcester Cathedral is an astonishing place to look at. Whether you are inside dwarfed by the stunning stain glass sections of the grand windows, or looking at it from across the River Severn. Well worth chucking a fiver donation for the upkeep. Check out the dungeon and the Cathedral gardens while you are there! A trip to Worcester (or the... More

One of the most beautiful Cathedrals in the world. Free to visit but donations encouraged as maintenance costs are very high. If you're lucky, you hear the magnificent organ and choir. Visit at the time of a service to be sure.

A very interesting Cathedral, peaceful and historic. Royal tombs, Chapter House and Norman Crypt. Fascinating architecture. Worth a look.

One of the better cathedrals I have visited. Not so much as a commercial site more a place of God. Parking can be a problem but the walk is worth it.
