Christmas Tree display

We wandered in here to see the Christmas Tree displays which were lovely. The cathedral is well worth a visit if you are in Worcester!

Visited Worcester cathedral recently and was very impressed. Some of the stained glass was away being cleaned but the window which had already been cleaned was just beautiful. If you are in Worcester this is well worthba look.

Wonderful place --- the circular chamber for debates is awe inspiring -- the cathedral itself is magnificent --- just think of those years and years if labour and love poured into the building of such a place --- the crypt - the stained glass , the workmanship everywhere is phenomenal --- and when you hear a choir sing --- you...

Staying in Worcester I had to make sure I visited the cathedral. It is situated near the city center so very easy to find. It looks lovely from the outside but nothing to what awaits you when you enter. The archways are amazing and the stained glass windows are something else. The lovely colours are stunning. I lit a candle... More

I have been wanting to visit Worcester Cathedral for a long time. It was worth the wait. What an amazing place. With three separate periods of construction this wonderful church holds a treasure trove of burials, memorials and ancient artefacts. I was delighted to discover that not only is King John entombed here, but so is Prince Arthur, older brother... More

This Cathedral is really impressive and thought-provoking. We actually went in on this occasion to view the decorating of the Christmas Trees in the Cloisters. There are dozens all round the Cloisters decorated by different Groups and well worth a visit. Officially from 3rd December. Magical for adults and children alike.

This was our Second visit to Worcester Cathederal and we enjoyed it equally as well as the First. There happened to be a Xmas Fayre in the Cloysters which had lots of Craft and Specialist stalls that made it a memorable outing. The Cathederal in itself was imaculate and reminded us of all the history of the crusades and Prince... More

Beautiful Cathedral loved the marble and all stone work outstanding building . Set slap bang in the middle of the town you can not miss it and it shouldn't be missed if you visit Worcester .

Wonderful place to visit. We had the extra pleasure of a xmas market within the building but the grandeur and history of the building makes you feel as if you are stepping back in time. Awsome - and the cafe in the Chapter house is well worth visiting.

The cathedral is really impressive and so nice and calm away from the busy city centre. There are always plenty of guides around to offer information, but equally you are left to your own to look around and discover lots of interesting things. The gift shop is nice too.
