What’s in Worcester?
With an industrial history that dates back to the Iron Age, Worcester has a rich and varied heritage that is still evident today. The Royal Worcester Porcelain factory was in production for 258 years but after closing down in 2009 it has recently become the Worcester Porcelain Museum. Now home to the largest collection of Worcester porcelain, the museum offers a creative insight into the city’s cultural growth and the evolution of its craftsmanship.
Worcester Cathedral is another of the city’s historic sites. A place of great social influence since the 8th Century, the Cathedral has attracted visitors for hundreds of years. Whether you are interested in the Cathedral’s history or simply want to admire the majestic architecture, it is certainly an attraction to add to your list.
Worcester’s shopping scene also offers the opportunity to experience a slice of Worcester’s extensive history. The pedestrianised High Street and nearby Friar Street house an array of individual specialist shops, major retail names, and bars and restaurants in timbered medieval buildings and period passageways and malls, making for a particularly charming shopping trip!
