Amazing place to visit, the architecture and history of the cathedral, even my young grandsons were speechless when we got inside. It didn't last long they bombarded us with questions and enjoyed every minute. A return is on the books.

First visit to Worcester and not disappointed. Absolutely fantastic architecture with history oozing out of every stone. Fabulous stained glass - choose a bright day to see it at its most dazzling. Plenty of staff/helpers on hand to help with question. Very useful explanatory panels on King John and Magna Carta. Good Cathedral coffee shop but it's not huge so... More
