about Worcester

The historic City of Worcester is awash with heritage both inside the city boundaries and beyond. With early beginnings as a settlement in the Iron age  period and home to one of England’s most magnificent 12th Century Cathedrals situated on the banks of the River Severn it has become a popular modern day place to live, conveniently located for the commuter and lovers of the countryside .    
 
The views of the Malverns are stunning and it is easy to see how their beauty and grandeur inspired many musicians, writers and poets, the most famous being Sir Edward Elgar and J R R Tolkein.
 
Worcester has many sporting venues to be proud of from Cricket at New Road, Horse Racing at Pitchcroft and Rugby at Sixways, home to the Worcester Warriors. On a cultural front there is the Swan Theatre, Huntingdon Hall and the Theatres in nearby Malvern offering something for everyone all year round.
 
Worcester enjoys a plethora of shops, boutiques, bars and restaurants, for those who seek a wider range of facilities it is within easy reach of Birmingham, Cheltenham and Stratford either via the motorway or from one of the two mainline railway stations.
