Worcester cathedral is a lovely building inside and out. The acoustic is fabulous and if you are lucky enough to visit when the choir is rehearsing you will appreciate it . The stained glass windows are magnificent and history surrounds you. Henry Viii's brother Arthur...More

The volunteers at the cathedral were lovely - very happy to inform and direct. I was really impressed by the well preserved ceilings, especially with the lovely angels playing various instruments. It was sweet to go at Christmastime as we saw all the trees around...More

Officially no, but there is a "suggested" donation of about £7.00. I didn't officially donate but, as I took lots of photos, I was happy to pay £3.00 for a photography permit and, because I got so much from my visit, I made... More

Hi Pub - how are you? Just read your thread re King John's tomb. I live near Worcester and you can see the tomb in Worcester Cathedral (if you haven't already done so) via go to google images, type in King John in Worcester Cathedral and click on the 2nd image along the top row and the pic will come up at the top. If you click on that it will enlarge the picture. Hope it works! .....activegirl

We will be arriving in Birmingham and have about 3 days to spend in the area I n early August. We'd like to see the Cotswolds as well as Worcester Cathedral. We found a beautiful place to stay in Ross on Wye but now are wondering if we would be better off staying in Stow-on-the-Wold. I'd appreciate any input. Thank you

Ross on Wye is in Herefordshire, though not far from Cotswolds. It very much depends on what exactly you wish to see in Cotswolds, but Stow on the Wold is in Cotswolds, so most of area's attractions are within a reach. Worcester is in Worcestershire, so if you wish to compromise - Evesham will be good location for visiting Northern Cotswolds and Worcester as well. Yuri.
