Worcestershire is a county situated in the West Midlands. It is a region that features the Malvern Hills, the Forest of Wyre and charming market towns such as Tenbury Wells.
The Cathedral city of Worcester
dates back to the 11th century and is considered to be one of England's most attractive towns. It has a fascinating history that is clearly evident in its magnificent cathedral. Popular visitor attractions and sites of interest include the Royal Worcester Porcelain visitor centre and the impressive Guildhall building by Thomas White.
The River Severn
flows past some charming country towns such as Upton-upon-Severn. A scattering of Georgian Inns can be found throughout the town and provide reminders of its fascinating history. Upton's heritage centre, The Pepper Pot vividly exhibits the town's heritage and is the site of the Battle of Upton, which took place in 1651.
Worcestershire is also walking country. The Malvern Hills
offer some great trails and paths that wind across dramatic hills and forests. The same is true of the Wyre Forest which affords one some great views of the meandering River Severn, which flows lazily through the county. See the guide below for more detailed information about Worcestershire visitor attractions and places of interest.
