Good to walk around, plenty of things to interest you, in particular tomb of King John. Pleasant way to spend an hour or two while visiting the city and the restaurant worth a visit too, but don't leave it too late in the day as they seem to run out of a lot of things.

I came here several times with my family, alone and with my students. Stunning architecture. Amazing guided tours and 2.30 and 4pm everyday. Service is at 4pm on a Sunday. Great shop and cafe. I recommend buying swan food for £1.50 and feeding the swans and ducks at the canal.

A majestic gothic cathedral overlooking the river Severn, with many interesting features. Look for the strange animals in the tall stain glass window. You will find the grave of the last Saxon bishop, bishop wulstan. Last and not least the resting place of the bad King John, here because no other cathedral would take him.

Thank you writing your review, we are glad you enjoyed your visit. In 1216 when King John drew up his Will his Kingdom was in a disastrous state of affairs but in his Will he requested that he be buried in Worcester Cathedral. His Will is oldest Royal Testament in England and is on display in the Cathedral Library from... More

Surprisingly big cathedral. We did not have time for anything more than a cursory look and did not find King Johns tomb although there were people we could have asKed

The most beautiful Cathedral! Situated at the top of Worcester High street the best car park is The Gifford Multi Storey which is only 200 metres walk away and has a lift. The Cathedral has a good cafe and gift shop. If you are lucky enough to be visiting when the Organ is being played, you are in for a... More

Liked the fact that no charge levied for entrance and relied on donations. Tour guide, £4, well worthwhile...as we have found in other c cathedrals otherwise tendency to wander round aimlessly! Through the guide discovered that Prince Arthur, elder son of Henry VII was buried there having died through illness whilst visiting Ledbury. But for that his younger brother, Henry,... More

Really lovely cathedral and well worth a visit. The fact it is one of the few cathedrals that doesn't ask for payment is a plus. The guides are very knowledgeable and helpful. Well worth a visit.
