Rising majestically above the River Severn, Worcester Cathedral is the city’s most beautiful and historic building.
Worcester Cathedral stands tall in the centre of Worcester, built in the Seventh Century, served by monks until the Reformation. The Cathedral has been famous since the 18th century for its participation in the annual Three Choirs Festival, the oldest choral festival in existence. Explore how the Worcester Cathedral has become the centre of a sprawling community and townspeople, offering religious services and serving the city all whilst attracting visitors from across the globe.
Featuring royal tombs of King John and Prince Arthur, medieval cloisters, ancient crypts and chapter houses, with beautifully crafted Victorian stained glass, there’s plenty to do and see at this adventurous landmark! Alongside all the fascinating story and history behind the Cathedral, there is also an ancient library and archive, which to this date contains the second largest collection of medieval manuscripts in any cathedral within the UK. Booking is essential to visit the medieval library.
With services three times a day, there’s always something going on at Worcester Cathedral. Visit the website to find more information regarding services, tours and when the tower is open.
Access to the majority of the Cathedral is limited for disabled visitors as the architecture involves narrow spiral staircases and steep steps. Currently, access to the Tower and the Library isn’t available for disabled visitors.
There is a tactile guide available for the visually impaired and a loop is available at all services for the hard of hearing.
