Worcester Cathedral is located alongside the River Severn. With impressive Victorian stained-glass windows and a huge tower, the Cathedral draws attention and visitors from all over the world.
The Cathedral hosts services daily for those who want to come along and worship, and for those wanting to visit the Cathedral for its architecture and history, you can visit everyday too.
If you are visiting as a tourist, or are seeing Worcester Cathedral for the first time, you can book guided group tours, which take you around the building explaining the amazing architecture and history.
You can climb the tower during weekends and school holidays between February to October (sometimes into December depending on the weather). As you ascend the tower, you will also see the Clock Chamber and Bellringing Teaching Centre. You can apply to the teaching centre if you are interested in learning more.
It is said that during the civil war, the future King Charles II watched the battle of Worcester from the top of the tower, giving you a view of the city’s history. You can also see the Royal tombs of King John and Prince Arthur when visiting the Cathedral.
Each year, Worcester Cathedral hosts a Christmas tree festival where local schools, businesses, charities and community groups decorate trees to go on display. You can see these from December to January and the event is designed to raise money for the Cathedral.
When you visit the Cathedral, there are plenty of facilities for guests, including a gift shop and café. Being in the centre of Worcester, there are plenty of pubs, restaurants and shopping facilities close by, so you will be able to make the most of your visit and immerse yourself in the city.
If you are a business, or you have an event coming up and need a venue, you can run events at the Cathedral, or utilise the space for meetings, conferences and special events.
