Worcester in Worcestershire is located approximately 30 miles from Birmingham and is home to the Lea and Perrins Worcester Sauce factory. The city features many buildings from the Tudor period and the River Severn flows through the centre. Worcester cathedral was built over many centuries since 1084 and as a result features several architecture styles.
Worcester is an ancient city, dominated by its wonderful cathedral. Worcester stands on the banks of the River Severn in the centre of a rich, fertile plain. It is compact enough for wandering in, and is rich in old buildings, including Greyfriars, a timbered Franciscan house of 1480. The Dyson Perrins Museum has one of the world's finest collections of Worcester porcelain and bone china. The splendid 18thcentury guildhall displays Civil War armour used at the Battle of Worcester in 1651.
Worcester cathedral was started in 1084 and has a beautiful crypt built by Bishop Wulfstan; the choir stalls were added in the 13th century, and the tower in the 14th century. Among the many monuments is the tomb of King John, including an effigy of his face. One of the best views of the cathedral is from the modern Giffard Hotel in the cathedral precincts. The cathedral over-looks one of the most peaceful and beautiful cricket grounds in England. The Methodist Church of St Andrew has a very different setting, standing over a shopping arcade high above Pump Street. It was opened in 1968 and is reached by lift, or winding staircase beside a large, colourful stained-glass window in modern abstract style. All that remains of the 15th-century St Andrew's Church is a tower and spire 250 ft high above riverside gardens. Its local name is the Glover's Needle.
