Worcester, by the River Severn, is a city with a fascinating history of industry and a wealth of interesting architecture. Medieval Worcester Cathedral, one of the loveliest in England, houses royal tombs, a crypt and cloisters and admission is free. The timber-framed Tudor House Museum, a 16th Century building situated in Worcester’s oldest and prettiest street and also with free admission, focuses on life in Tudor and 17th-century Worcester, with displays on traditional brewing and weaving.
