I would highly recommend booking yourself on to a guided tour of this beautiful building to get the most out of your visit. Evensong is on Sundays at 4 p.m. when you would also be able to listen to the Cathedral Choristers.

We visited the cathedral in a rainy Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed the guided tour around the place as I feel a tour will always give more information than just wandering around yourself. The coffee and cake was lovely at the cafe situated within the cathedral.

A wonderful building and place of history and solace. Only wish we could have stayed longer and lapped up more of the cathedral's history.

Breath taking. Very well kept. Was lucky to attend a wedding here which was amazing, what a setting, and have to mention the choir were wonderful. What ever you expect, I cant see how you could be disappointed.

So much on offer in Worcester Cathedral. Seeing the tomb of King John, the Crypt, the stained glass ( and children must look for the pink giraffe) to its pure magnificence, an incredible building which is free to enter. And if time is not limited take the climb up the Tower, the views are magnificent and worth the small fee.
