We have been to various events at the Cathedral over the years, and we have never been disappointed. One of the most beautiful Cathedrals, which is really well maintained and such a variety of events. We have been to Opera evenings, concerts, graduation ceremonies and much more including listening to the great Mr Trotter. It is well worth a visit... More

Wonderful music from a well directed choir, evensong is a classic example of something the English do so very well. This choir's singing transported me to a place where my spirit transcended all things earthly.

Worcester Cathedral is a beautiful building, full of history and peace. King John of Magna Carta fame is buried here as is Arthur, elder bother of Henry VIII. Great coffee shop in the cloister. A visit for every age: I love this place.

Had a lovely couple of hours mooching about however the steps to the tower are not for the faint hearted. They get steeper and more claustrophobic the higher you get! Views from the top are amazing though. The volunteers are knowledgeable and friendly. Well worth a visit.
