Worcester Cathedral is FREE to enter and relies on voluntary contributions. Most certainly worth a visit the architecture and artwork is second to none. We paid to travel up the Bell Tower, which is not for the feint hearted, however well worth the few hundred...More

You can go inside the cathedral for free and it is definitely worth a visit. It is beautiful inside, especially the glass windows, and there are lots of things to see/read about. We will visit here again.

Well worth a visit. My kids weren't overly impressed, but I was. Even if you only spend an hour there, there is plenty to see and quite a few interactive displays about the history of the site. The crypt is fantastic.

Officially no, but there is a "suggested" donation of about £7.00. I didn't officially donate but, as I took lots of photos, I was happy to pay £3.00 for a photography permit and, because I got so much from my visit, I made... More
