Worcester Cathedral has been a place of prayer and worship since 680 AD. The present building was begun in 1084. In recent years there has been a whole programme of renovation to ensure Worcester Cathedral remains a place of worship to be very proud of.
The Cathedral overlooks the River Severn and if you stand on the Worcester bridge, todays cathedral is lit up and it shines a beautiful rippling reflection on the river, making Worcester Cathedral stand out as a fine peice of architecture.
Its many attractions include: King John's Tomb, Prince Arthur's Chantry, the early 12th century Chapter House and St Wulstan's Crypt. Entry is free.
The Cathedral is open and staffed on every day of the year from 7.30am to 6pm. There is always a member of the Clergy available.
