Create an itinerary including Worcester Cathedral
History and beauty combine at Worcester Cathedral, built over a period of over four centuries, starting in 1084. The cathedral represents every style of English architecture, from Norman to Perpendicular Gothic. Noted for its Norman crypt and unique chapter house, the cathedral also features unusual Transitional Gothic bays, fine woodwork, and an iconic central tower. The cathedral contains the tomb of King John who, before his death in 1216, specifically requested to be buried here, between the shrines of St. Wulstan and St. Oswald (which no longer exist). Guided historical tours are offered year round, which you can book online or at the cathedral’s Chapter Office. By using our Worcester road trip planning website, you can arrange your visit to Worcester Cathedral and other attractions in Worcester.

  • A magnificent building steeped in history. The organ is breathtaking as is the ceiling. King John's tomb is also on display. The guides are really helpful and informative.

  • Really good visit. 2 hours should do it. Free entry which in this day and age is great. Some great photo opportunities. We had lunch in the cafe, which has a lovely atmosphere enjoyed. Recommended

  • Always go when we go to Worcester. Largely closed off though at the moment.
  • All cathedrals built around this time look the same, like weworks...
