Amazing and expansive. Couldn't believe the size of it. Stained glass windows to die for - pardon the pun. Take your time going through the grounds which are immaculate and atmospheric. We were lucky enough to view an exhibition of tapestry celebrating the book of revelations which was just fantastic. Everything is very accessible and informative so you leave with... More

It doesn't have the grandeur of many and it is just off the ring road which is pretty insensitive of the planners but...... It is a hugely interesting place - we went to see the tomb of King John. First time we have ever had a guide - and gosh we were so glad we did. Opened new vistas for... More

Worcester cathedral review 22/1/17 The building and architecture is magnificent. Brings back wonderful memories of my graduation ceremony with echoes of prestige and history. The design intricacies of the stained glass windows have value in the individuals they commemorate detailed beneath in extravagant handwriting. The pillars support an immensely high ceiling which arches over the crypt chamber with many tapestries... More

There are lots of very special tombs, great stained glass and interesting things to see. There are lots of helpful signs and also there are usually stewards around to offer both information and help. There is a small shop and also a café.... More

Worcester Cathedral is simply splendid - show the children the superb stained glass window with many exotic animals. There is a beautiful riverside walk lined with chestnut trees from the Cathedral to the centre of the city and the swan sanctuary - stunning in the Spring

Worcester Cathedral dominates the city views especially from the west but can be seen from most of the surrounding streets. It is located at the end of the High Street, which is having major restoration of its shopping facilities undertaken in 2016/2017. The cathedral itself is free to enter but parking is almost non-existent although the King Street car park... More

Such a beautiful building, worth walking around even if not in ti history and beautiful gardens if weather good. If you enjoy a coffee and cake there is a coffee shop or if you fancy a history walk then there are helpers at hand. Always something on display so ask. If you want to go to the top of the... More
