We were given a great welcome to the building by the volunteers who offered us leaflets and advice on getting the best out of the visit. Underneath the cathederal lie the vaults and they were certainly worth a visit. A must be on everyones list in a visit to worcester No charge to go in but a dolation is nice.

What a fantastic building, the architecture is really stunning. There is so much history there, including the tomb of King John. Could have spent much longer there.

We visited on a gorgeous day and everything was quiet and basked in sunshine. Upon entering everything was quiet and we spent a good while looking at the art exhibition of the local schools work. We spent a while walking around and when we visited the shop the lady was very helpful and friendly. We had a really good chat!... More

In the centre of a busy City this is a haven of peace and tranquility by the lovely River Severn. We had a look around the Cathedral and lit a candle for our Son who died recently. Whilst lighting the Candle one of the ministers started saying prayers over the system. We met her to thank her and she took... More

If you are visiting, please take your time. Everyone sees King John, but Colonel Ellis is well worth spending some time with and trying to find the Pink Giraffe in the West window always keeps the children quiet for a while. A fine building with great views over the Severn to Malvern in the West.
