Best Things To Do & Days Out In Worcester

You won’t be short of cool things to do in Worcester! The city is famous for sport, history, spicy sauce and great family days out.

Worcester Cathedral is one of the most aesthetic in the UK. Set in lush green grounds and overlooking the River Severn, the welcome is as warm as it is impressive. Guided tours are available to take you around the cloisters and down into the depths of the ancient crypt. If small legs can manage it then a climb up the 235 steps to the top of the tower is highly recommended for great views over the city, river and countryside beyond.

The nearby Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum showcases items from archeology, art and geology that encapsulate the incredible history of the city and and its inhabitants, breathing life into Worcester family days out. Follow dinosaur footprints, marvel at a Roman mosaic and discover collections of weapons and items collated from Victorian adventurers.

Disgust and delight children at the George Marshall Medical Museum, where medical practices of the past will both fascinate and appall! If you’ve got the stomach for it, learn how they performed amputation back in the 19th century and find out what a ‘Death Mask’ is!

You’ll be in need of some fresh air after that so visit the Green Flag awarded Worcester Woods Country Park. Blow cobwebs away and run until your legs get tired over 100 acres of woodland and meadows.

Rain doesn’t need to interrupt play, keep dry whilst racing around an indoor go-karting track or shooting family members at Karting and Laser Combat or score a strike at Bowl Xtreme.
