King Charles House



King Charles House, New Street, Worcester (near friar street)

This is one of the city's most historic buildings. It was from this house that King Charles II made his escape through the back door, closely pursued by Cromwell's forces to exile in France, after his defeat in the Battle of Worcester in 1651

Nowadays the building is a restaurant. The restaurant itself boasts a dungeon on the ground floor in which Judge William Berkeley supposedly kept his victims who awaited trial.

This building is beautifully presented all year round, with vibrant colours in the hanging baskets on the outside in the summer, to the interior decor and attention to detail.
