Beautiful historic building in central Worcester. We very much enjoyed wandering around looking at things from the amazing roof and buttresses to the atmospheric crypt. There's no direct admission charge but we spent some money in the very nice café in the Cloisters. Highly recommended.

The guided tour was great - highly informative and well run. You’d never fully appreciate the history without it.

Lovely cathedral . I didn’t expect it to be so good. Loved the architecture and the green areas out the back near the river

The Cathedral is like a tardis, inside seems much bigger than it looks from outside. It has a wonderful interior, lots of history, well worth a visit

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
