Whilst visiting Worcester we decided that the Cathedral was a 'must do'. The building is visible almost anywhere in the city and is well worth going to. They offer a tour which you have to pay for and the Tower is only open on Saturdays and again this is something which is an extra. Just to go in the Cathedral... More

We visited the cathedral and found Evensong in progress - how fortunate for us. We were able to sit and listen in a beautiful atmosphere. This cathedral is worth two visits, really. One for a service and one just for a stroll around the interior of a magnificent building.

After visiting Worcester several times, decided to visit the cathedral. All I can say was it worth a visit. Full of history and throw in a couple of royal tombs.

I never realised how grand Worcester cathedral is. The stain glass windows are amazing and the whole building exudes grandeur. If you feel fit enough i recommend the trip up the bell tower, although this is not for the fainthearted with 200+ steps on a steep winding spiral staircase which narrows as you get near to the top. The views... More

The tower of this cathedral dominates the city, as does the pealing of the Wedding bells. Dedicated to Christ and the Blessed Mary the Virgin, this is a building that has many uses and as many architectural styles as histories. In the September sunshine the local stone takes on a slightly pink tint, and inside this is more confused with... More

We had wanted to visit and view this beautiful serene building, but we arrived a little late on the Saturday afternoon, but it was entirely fortuitous as we were just in time for the choral evensong, which was just wonderful, the choir were fabulous and the organist played wonderfully. We'll definitely visit again with time for a relaxed walk around... More

You cannot go to Worcester without visiting the Cathedral, It is beautiful, and the cafe isn't bad either. On our visit we were lucky enough to be treated to the bells playing Spectacular!

A beautiful cathedral and very interesting. Visited with grandchildren who were made very welcome and given a trail to complete which they found informative. Found the crypt to be very atmospheric and peaceful. Well worth a visit from a historical point of view as well as a place of worship.
