We love cathedrals.

We though it a most interesting and beautiful building but then we are biased as we always make a point of visiting cathedrals.

What a beautiful Cathedral! It has all the classical features - a magnificent cloister, mullioned stained glass windows, huge arches, beautiful floor tiles and famous burials. You can visit the burial places of King John, Arthur (elder brother of Henry VIII) and Edward Elgar. The Cathedral is situated on the edge of the River Severn and within the ancient heart... More

I visited this on a late July saturday morning. The cathedral is awesome. It looks deceptively average on the outside but its inside is beyond words can describe. Huge, awesome, beautiful. Entrance is free with a suggested donation of £7. I went up the tower for £4. The 360o view of the city at the top of the tower is... More

Visited the cathedral with my mother and brother, what a truly amazing building. It's cavernous lavish interior was jaw dropping, a true tribute to the men who built it. We were lucky as well to listen to a choir visiting from Virginia, which was magical. I feel I could have spent hours in there, so much to appreciate. Outside the... More

This cathedral is a lovely place to visit and seems to have it all. We enjoyed looking at the splendid architecture and the wonderful stained glass windows. We sat in peaceful silence in a side room which was open for prayers, we lit a candle for dear departed loved ones and wrote a special message in the book. We visited... More

Well worth a visit and fascinating to walk around. Wonderful architecture and history, tea rooms for refreshments, and nice and peaceful to get away from the rat race for a while!

This must be one of the most fabulous English cathedrals. Spacious and full of light, with an entrance via a wonderful cloister. We stayed for evensong, sitting on the choir stalls, and although we are not religious it was a very spiritual and enjoyable experience.

This is really worth a visit, ok, my day was super special, with my son's graduation but I've been back and it's really a thing of such beauty. I've been to Salisbury cathedral many times because I think it is really amazing but Worcester is pretty great too ... and you've the river severn nearby and the walks along that... More
