Another excellent cathedral with lots to see and enjoy. Permits for photography needed - £3 or, if you use a tripod, £5. I thoroughly approve of this: cathedrals require a lot of maintenance and this is one way to raise funds especially as admission is...More

Worth a look around it's a pretty building. It is always very well decorated at Christmas. Not much to say really.... it's a religious building.

Definitly a lovely cathedral, well worth a visit when you're in Worcester. Very central to the town centre of this lovely city with great areas to see, the river, the old area and the town centre with more cafes, bars, restaurants than shops

This is one of Britain’s great historical sites and practically free to visit. Usually quiet compared to York Canterbury etc. Tomb of king John and prince Arthur. Great. Nice cafe.

Photography is allowed, sometimes you can purchase a pass. Most Cathedrals I visit are immaculately clean around the floor areas, handrails and the toilet facilities and the cafeteria, that was the case here, today.

So much history and atmosphere here. Allow plenty of time for a long visit as there is so much to see.

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
