Chancing to visit the Cathedral, and having spent time marvelling at the breath taking structure, we were advised by the stewards that Evensong would begin at 5.30pm. We stayed to hear the wonderful choir. Magical moment with the sun still shining in through the doors.

My first visit to Worcester Cathedral. So much history in one building. Very helpful volunteers. Friendly café. Such an inspiring place, whether you are religious or not. Hoping to attend Sunday service.

One of England's great cathedral's and possibly much bigger than you might expect. Free to enter and all displays well signed. Lovely children's art work display in the cloisters when we went.

What an amazing Cathedral imbued with history. Originally built in 680, replaced in 983 and again after the Norman conquest in 1084, then major restoration in the Victorian era. We were fortunate enough to hear Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor played on the...More
