This part of town still has appeal but the novelty will disappear sooner or later. The restaurants are the wrong choices for the area. Byron burgers advertising is still there despite the restaurant chain not coming to the area. Kung fu restaurant is having issues....More

This square was recently upgraded. Across the road are some important memorials (see accompanying photos). The square itself, sadly, had to have anti-terrorist barricades installed at some considerable expense. Nonetheless, a nice place to congregate and enjoy a sunny day (!).

Over the summer they have used the space for a great display on world war 1 centenary. A great fair weather activity. If you have time, have a wander through.

This is still advertising a restaurant chain that is closing and we aren’t going to get what’s been advertised for such a long time. Get rid of the artwork and open the unit as a restaurant or another shop

Many who are local to the Worcester area either enjoy this relatively new addition to the city. I could not make my mind up. As we approached the end of the High street,we both commented on just how many shops that looked almost finished or...More

I love cathedral square. It's a great space opposite the cathedral. The only thing I don't like are the steps. It's very easy to not see them, particularly in the dark. Will they be icy in the winter ? Smooth surface, let's hope not... But...More
