Every year the 3 Choirs Festival moves between Worcester, Gloucester and Hereford and this year is Worcester's turn. We attended the opening ceremony in the Cathedral on Saturday. All of the dignitaries of Worcester, Gloucester and Hereford - city, county and cathedral attended so it took about 15 minutes for them to process into the church. They are all very... More

Lovely cathedral, very friendly guides, we purchased at a cost of £3.00 a photo permit which was well worth it allowing us to take beautiful photos. The cafe was lovely, clean, well worth a visit

Unlike some cathedrals, it's free entry (though one is encouraged to donate to the maintenance funds). A huge building, 400+ metres long with the usual mix of styles as parts were added or renovated throughout its existence. The Chapter House has a wonderfully serene atmosphere; an unadorned, huge, light space.

Now Cathedrals and Abbeys are not usually my scene but this visit has changed my mind. Stunning architecture(as you would expect) but exhibitions within are both different and interesting. Very educational. Will be back.

It is impressive but it takes around 30 min to see all. Great catacombs and outside (riverside). I live in Worcester and I've been there few time, each time I discover something new.

Really enjoyed my trip here. The cathedral is even older than some I have visited previously and it is free to enter which is rare nowadays. Inside it is really peaceful and a visit to the crypt is good too. Lots of information dotted around, a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Worcester cathedral is delightful at whatever time you go during the year. We have been lucky enough to enjoy music and choir singing at different times. This time we weren't so lucky, but still enjoyed our visit considerably. It is a place of peace and tranquility with an awesome view of the River Severn. We haven't yet done the paid... More

An amazing architectural feat. Lovely and quiet without being oppressive; nice to have the organ being practised as well. Information helpful and it was just so wonderful to be able to wander around taking it all in at leisure without noisy tourists. It is absolutely magnificent ,and, unlike some Cathedrals, no entry charge, but of course donations welcomed, which is... More

It has to be the place to visit what ever religion you practice ,or none. A warm welcome and good plan of the building. There's an interesting exhibition in the crypt at the moment about the three cathedrals that there have been on this site since about 700. There is the Tomb of King John plus others, who isn't as...
