Worcester Hotels

The ancient Roman settlement of Worcester has become world renowned as the birthplace of the tangy, spiced Worcester Sauce, the recipe of which still remains secret to this day. As well as being a gateway to the gentle, rolling green hills, and invigorating, crystal clear mineral waters of the Malverns, the town itself boasts some great shopping. The skyward bound pale stone spires of the ancient cathedral are a favourite with visiting history aficionados, and a must see too.

Things to see

Dating back to 1084AD, Worcester Cathedral has been a place of worship for even longer. There’s some stunning views to be found atop the fortified bell tower that overlooks the town, and the dusty ancient tombs of King John, and Prince Arthur, brother to the infamous Henry VIII lie below along with the intoxicating atmosphere of the crypts. Outdoor lovers will enjoy the fact that Worcester lies mere moments away from some of the most beautiful scenery in the region, the Malverns. The curving hills and glittering streams form the ideal setting for a hike, and you can find some breathtaking, panoramic views to take in while enjoying a hearty picnic. You’ll also find the cultural gems of the Malvern Museum and Theatre in the area. After a hard day exploring the local countryside, the town centre offers winding pedestrianized streets filled with cafes, shops, and bars – a great place to unwind.

Hotels in Worcester

Worcester has more than its fair share of luxury hotels, ranging from golfing retreats where you can hone your swing in elegance, to fully equipped country manors boasting sumptuous spas, refreshing swimming pools and much more. While discount hotels are in shorter supply, you’ll find a number of traditional country inns that make the slight bump up in price well worth it. You’ll find free WiFi on offer at almost all accommodation in the area, as well as a tantalising complimentary breakfast (that begs to be doused in the deep local sauce if it’s a full English).

Where to stay

If the local history is your main point of interest, then finding accommodation in the area around Worcester Foregate Station can be your best bet, as you’ll be close to the town centre and local museum. This can also be a good choice for those wanting to head out further into the countryside by rail too, although for the ultimate in luxurious rural retreats you should head towards Malvern. Alternatively, for somewhere close to the Cathedral and town centre, then College Street leaves you within easy ambling distance of both, and you can catch evening views of the luminescent Cathedral against clear country skies.

How to get to Worcester

Despite its fairly secluded country location, Worcester is actually very easy to reach, even for international visitors from outside the UK. A regular coach service runs from London Heathrow direct to Worcester, meaning there’s minimum fuss finding your way to your destination. Alternatively, Worcester is well served by trains, having 2 local stations, and can be easily reached from Bristol or Birmingham. Worcester itself, especially the centre and main attractions, can easily be explored on foot. If you’re planning on heading out into the countryside, then there’s a number of local taxi and bus services available to get you there.
