There is a vault of history here for you even if like me you are not religious. It helps to prove beyond doubt that there is more history outside London than in it. How many of you know that King John is entombed there? The building is fascinating and if you can climb the tower steps you will see wonderful... More

Arguably Worcester's best landmark. A simply stunning example of its time. As a Worcester girl born and bred I have visited a number of times over the years, school trips, concerts etc, the last being a trip with relatives from Australia. History, architecture, music and a great little cafe and gift shop. Donations are requested to the upkeep. My family... More

Great place to visit a short stroll from the train & bus stations. This is obviously "stacked" with history & must be one of the most scenic cathedrals in the uk

A definite must on a visit to Worcester! Really magnificent building, outside and in! Even if you don't have a lot of time, it is definitely worth a quick visit inside. Would recommend to friends, as worth a visit!

You must visit if you get to Worcester. Free admission But they ask all visitors to donate £5 each to maintain this historic building. Great cafe which does a very good lunch menu and local cheeses.

a beautiful cathedral with many historical features - fabulous views across the battlefield (Battle of Worcester) from the top of the bell tower. The crypt area is also intriguing.

Beautiful cathedral right in the heart of Worcester City and on the banks of the River Severn. Well worth a visit and if you are lucky may hear the Kings School choir practicing.

A wonderful historic and beautiful place. The crypt is a "must see", as are the cloisters. The two royal tombs (Prince Arthur - who would have been King before Henry VIII had he lived) and King John's are parts of English history. Also to be recommended is a visit to the tower. Be prepared for a climb of 229 steps,... More
