Hotels in Worcester
There are few other settlements in England that could fit the quintessential image of an historic cathedral city as Worcester. Known as 'Wroxeter' in the Roman Empire, Worcester's illustrious medieval cathedral overlooking the historic Worcestershire County Cricket Ground is the ultimate English postcard. On the southwestern outskirts of the city near the historic Powick Bridge is the site of the formidable Battle of Worcester of 1651, the final battle of the English Civil War.
Worcester has also earned an enviable international reputation for its savoury sauce, and is part of Britain's longest river, the Severn.
One of the finest examples of Norman and Gothic architecture in Britain, Worcester Cathedral was built shortly after the Norman Invasion, although a priory had been established at this site approximately 400 years earlier. The building was altered on several occasions in subsequent centuries, most notably in the Victorian era, and is 52m high, commanding fine panoramic views of the city and The Malverns from its imposing tower.
In a beautifully preserved medieval building, The Commandery became a museum in the 1970s and examines Worcester's role in the English Civil War. The site, which was founded more than 900 years ago, also showcases the history of Worcester in its monastic days, the Tudor era, and the growth of the city during the Industrial Revolution and the 20th century.
The Museum of Royal Worcester
Also regularly open to visitors, the Museum of Royal Worcester exhibits the history of one of Worcester's proudest industries, Royal Worcester porcelain, which was founded in 1751. The venue now houses more than 10, 000 ceramic artefacts, and regularly organises workshops, talks and temporary exhibitions throughout the year.
The Worcester City Art Gallery & Museum, which marked its 150th anniversary in 1983 and is now housed in a splendid Victorian building, contains many fascinating craft exhibits and contemporary artworks. If you have the time, consider heading a little south of the city centre to Fort Royal Hill, where you can enjoy an impressive view of the cathedral and the city skyline on a site that was once a Civil War fort.
