Make sure you visit the cathedral if you are in Worcester. It's beautiful and awe-inspiring inside and set in a beautiful area surrounded by Georgian houses including Elgar's former home. Also go to the cafe!

It's difficult to review a cathedral as there's nothing to do but admire the visuals. However, the visuals here were beautiful and it's worth popping in if you're around.

Visited on a day when they were preparing for a graduation ceremony, but rather than close the Cathedral, a side door gave access to all but the nave. Very friendly and helpful welcome once inside.

Imposing vaulted ceiling with spectacular stained glass windows, several interesting tombs and a super onyx / marble pulpit. Don't miss going up the tower which has superb views across Worcester city.

What a lovely interior. I really liked the crypt, the cloisters and the amount of information about the cathedral. We didn’t stop at the cafe but it’s in a great location with tables in the cloisters.
