Make a day trip to Worcester from your holiday cottage; there’s more than enough here for an enjoyable day out, without the crowds of some of the region’s more famous towns. The lovely cathedral is an impressive starting point, where King John, best known for his associations with the Magna Carta, lies buried in the Royal Tomb. Climb the tower in the summer months for splendid views of the surrounding countryside.
For shoppers, Worcester has a great centre, with an excellent blend of major department stores and independent shops, mostly set in a pedestrianised zone and with a host of restaurants, bars and cafes for refuelling. Visit the Worcester Porcelain Museum and see master craftsmen at work producing the famous pottery and delicate figurines that have become famous the world over.
Call in at the City Art Gallery & Museum, be amazed at the wealth of history behind the modern town on a Worcester Story guided walk, or simply let children run off steam and enjoy a picnic at pretty Worcester Woods.
Beyond the town, there are a host of attractions and activities to be enjoyed; day at the Races, a visit to the County Museum or to the sprawling, spectacular ruin of Witley Court at nearby Great Witley.
