We had a guided tour around this small but beautiful church. The person showing us around had an amazing knowledge of the church's history. It is situated right in the middle of the town, so very easy if you are using local transport.

This smallish city-centre church with its box pews has a wonderful (?replica) console for the organ , with hand-operated bellows beside it. The elaborate pulpit is as fine as any others I've seen this year

St Swithun's does hold some services but in the main it has been preserved as a museum piece which show the old Box Pews and a Three Tier Pulpit. Interestingly, the Mayor of Worcester had a reserved seat of the front which faced the congregation....More
