Best Things To Do & Days Out In Worcester

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

From impressive landmarks, such as Worcester Cathedral, which is set in beautiful green grounds and overlooking the River Severn, to the Green Flag awarded Worcester Woods Country Park, where kids can run around over 100 acres of woodland and meadows, the choice of places to visit in Worcester is huge.

Follow dinosaur footprints, marvel at a Roman mosaic and discover collections of weapons and items collated from Victorian adventurers at Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum. Or if you fancy spending some time surrounded by the wonders of the great outdoors, visit The Knapp and Papermill Nature Reserve.

If your little ones will also enjoy soft play, you’ll find it difficult to leave, once you’ve taken them to Little Acorns Indoor Play, Worcester’s giant 15 000sqm indoor soft play area. Cheeky Monkeys Worcester is also a great place for soft play adventures.
