The Cathedral is like a tardis, inside seems much bigger than it looks from outside. It has a wonderful interior, lots of history, well worth a visit

Really interesting and lots of history, some of the statues and carving lovely. I just poped in for a look and stayed quite a while.

Despite its impressive site by the river, you do not get the full idea of the grandeur of the cathedral until you enter the nave, when the full height and majesty hit you. I could not help thinking how awed the common man would have...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.
