Welcome to Worcester

Worcester is a beautiful Cathedral and University City with a fascinating history of industry, a wealth of interesting architecture, top class sports teams and venues, an unrivalled selection of high street names and boutiques, and a vibrant programme of events.

The city is best known for its magnificent Cathedral, but is also famous for the world renowned Worcester Porcelain, the piquant Worcestershire Sauce and its cricket ground – one of the most picturesque in the country.

Visit the Commandery to learn about our important role in the English Civil War – and visit one of the many interesting contemporary exhibitions at the City Art Gallery. Stroll down Friar Street and admire the half-timbered buildings – including National Trust’s Greyfriars’ House & Garden and the 500 year old Tudor House.

Don’t forget to drop in to Worcester’s Guildhall - a truly beautiful building dating back to 1721, which has hosted royalty on numerous occasions.
