A couple of weeks ago we went on yet another jaunt, this time to visit the Severn Valley and the delights it has to offer. Our hotel destination was The Village in Dudley in the West Midlands near Birmingham but we stopped in Worcester for some lunch with time to mooch about and take a few photographs.
This is Worcester Town Hall.
Worcester is a lovely town with lots of old and new buildings.
Here's the quaint little pub where we had lunch.
A half timbered building across an alleyway.
Worcester Cathedral is a magnificent sight as it
rises majestically above the River Severn. Worcester has been the seat
of a bishopric since the Seventh Century, and the Cathedral was served
by monks until the Reformation. St Oswald and St Wulfstan were among the
bishops. Since the Eighteenth Century, the Cathedral has been famous
for its part in the annual Three Choirs Festival, the oldest choral
festival in existence. We really wanted to tour inside the cathedral but unfortunately there was a service on so it wasn't possible. If you follow the link above you can find out more about the Cathedral.
We didn't have very long in Worcester before we had to rejoin the coach to carry on our journey to the hotel.
I hope you'll join me next time for The Severn Valley Railway and some glass blowing.
