We were staying about a 20 minute drive from the centre of Worcester and decided to visit the Cathedral. We were more than happy to pay the entry fee (I call it a fee as although it is a "suggested donation" someone was eagerly waiting for our money) but it's worth noting that you also need to pay £3 to...

It is ancient, purring with history, humming with the prayers of ages, stuffed with fascinating things to see/read/contemplate.

I liked the fact that the cathedral does not force an entrance fee on you like other cathedrals but suggests a donation. Went to a service in one of the chapels and was amazed there were no gift aid envelopes. There are very few chapels in this cathedral. It would have been nice for some religious music to be played...

Haven't been to the cathedral in years but they have a wonderful Xmas tree exhibition in the cloisters. Completely free. Lots of companies and organisations designed their own tree. Such a beautiful building.

There is a marvellous display of Christmas trees in the cathedral at the moment; alas soon to disappear. Apart from the trees the building is well worth a visit. Significant restoration has been done in recent years.

Went to the midnight mass service at the cathedral, it was absolutely packed which was a joy and staff very helpful and guided us to our seats. The service I did feel went on rather a long time with all the sung responses, maybe a shorter version next year. Beautiful cathedral with so much history. The Christmas tree exibition was... More
