I've recently attended two events at Worcester Cathedral. The first was my PhD graduation in November and the second was the University of Worcester Advent Service last week. Both were made very special by this very stunning cathedral. Definitely worth visiting to look around if you are sight-seeing in Worcester or attending an event or service at the Cathedral.

Not only is the cathedral a beautiful and peaceful building to visit as it is steeped in history, the recently opened Christmas tree display in the cloisters is a definite "must". The display is a true delight and would appeal to everyone. At the time of my visit there were adults and children of all ages wandering round enjoying the... More

Visited the cathedral on Sunday morning. We went to see the Christmas Tree Festival. While walking around the cathedral the Sunday morning service began so it was lovely to hear the choir.

As well as the 'standard' church cathedral, Worcester cathedral has much more to offer. The chapter house is a large, vaulted circular room. Also a quad with great stained glass - and while were there, a wonderful display of stylised Xmas trees created by local schools, societies and businesses. Plenty of other things as well - including a strenuous (for... More

I have visited many cathedrals throughout the UK and there are several reasons that I like Worcester Cathedral Mostly it is a living breathing place of worship so you can see the Cathedral staff and volunteers preparing for special events and daily services. They do not charge you to enter but suggest an amount to donate (but there is no... More

Visited Worcester cathedral recently and was very impressed. Some of the stained glass was away being cleaned but the window which had already been cleaned was just beautiful. If you are in Worcester this is well worthba look.

Wonderful place --- the circular chamber for debates is awe inspiring -- the cathedral itself is magnificent --- just think of those years and years if labour and love poured into the building of such a place --- the crypt - the stained glass , the workmanship everywhere is phenomenal --- and when you hear a choir sing --- you...

Staying in Worcester I had to make sure I visited the cathedral. It is situated near the city center so very easy to find. It looks lovely from the outside but nothing to what awaits you when you enter. The archways are amazing and the stained glass windows are something else. The lovely colours are stunning. I lit a candle... More
