Worcester Visitor information

Worcester is a great picture of the old and the new : the city’s busy high street is situated only a short walk away from the Cathedral and the Commandery.  The High Street has got a variety of chains on offer, or visit Worcester’s independent shops and boutiques to find some unique gifts. 

The city is also known for the Worcester Porcelain, and the museum of Royal Worcester is the porcelain factory former site. But there is also of course the piquant Worcestershire Sauce which can be discovered at the Lea & Perrins sauce Factory. And last but not least, the most picturesque cricket ground in the country.

For those that prefer to soak up the scenery, you can take a journey on Britain’s premier steam railway, which provides some of the best riverside views in the country as it winds its way alongside the River Severn.

And if you wish to discover cultural sites of what shaped the city, you can explore The Commandery to learn about our important role in the English Civil War. See a contemporary exhibition at the City Art Gallery and admire the half-timbered buildings in Friar Street. These include Greyfriars’ House & Garden and the 500 year old Tudor House.

History of Worcester

Worcester is a city in England’s West Midlands region, by the River Severn.

During the Middle Ages Worcester was an important wool town, and glove making has been important since the 13th century.

The Worcester Cathedral has dominated every stage of Worcester’s history, as the first church was erected in 680, the site has therefore been a place of Christian worship and prayer for fourteen centuries. 

The present building was however erected in 1084 and is dedicated to Christ and Saint Mary. It is famous for its Norman crypt and unique chapter house. The Anglican Cathedral has got some fine woodwork and unusual gothic bays , and among the notable monuments, there are the tombs of King John and Prince Arthur, the eldest son of Henry VII. You can also climb to the top of the Cathedral tower to see magnificent views of the city, River Severn, County Cricket ground and countryside beyond.

There is a collection of churches scattered close to Worcester telling of the religious history of the area, one example being Great Witley Parish Church. Also called St. Michael and All Angels with the finest interior of Italian Baroque church in England. It includes a rich gilded ceiling with numerous paintings by Antonio Bellucci and ten exquisite painted glass windows.
