My wife and I visited on a Sunday afternoon to have a look round and were impressed with the building both internally and externally. The length of the Cathedral is quite amazing and is best appreciated by studying the intricacies of the roof internally.

Very impressive structure, must have been mind boggling when first built. Lots of interesting monuments especially King Johns tomb and Prince Arthurs Chantry. Children impressed too.

A beautiful building full of architectural examples. Wonderful stained glass windows and burial place of King John. Adjacent to the River Seven and possible to visit the tower and crypt.

If you are into history then this is the place for you. Of course it is a Christian center but it is also evidence of life as it has been lived since 1084 yes over 900 years. We had as our guide - tours at 1100 - and he was a fount of knowledge. He loved the place and showed... More

Visited to see an exhibition, to find that one of the organists was practicing on the quire organ, it's have been only 8 years old but the sounds were terrific. Worcester has 3 organs, what a shame one is silent at the moment the pipes look awesome.

There are also wonderful stained glass windows and vaulted ceilings. But perhaps the best thing is the peace and tranquility of the place. Be sure to go down to the... More
