Worcester Cathedral has been described as possibly the most interesting of all England’s cathedrals, especially architecturally. It was founded in 680. Saint Oswald then built another cathedral in 983, and established a monastery attached to it. Saint Wulfstan, who rebuilt the cathedral in 1084, began the present building.

The Commandery is a glorious Grade 1 listed site dating back to the 12th century, and has had a long and varied history that is reflected in its range of architectural styles from medieval to Victorian. The Commandery has exciting stories to tell you about power, greed, war, wealth, romance, death, society and industry. Worchester City Art Gallery and Museum hosts a unique programme of contemporary art exhibitions, as well as housing a historic picture collection and an intriguing selection of objects ranging from a 19th century chemist’s shop to the wonderful Worcester sauce machine.

Hanbury Hall (NT) is a homely William and Mary-style house completed in 1701. It is famed for its fine painted ceilings and staircase by Sir James Thornhill. The stunning garden, recreated in keeping with the period of the house, is surrounded by a park, with beautiful views over the surrounding countryside. Fascinating features within the garden include an orangery, ice house, 18th century bowling green and working mushroom house.
