Worcester attractions

WorcesterWorcester lies in the county of Worcestershire, a saucer-shaped area with the low lying plains of the Vale of Evesham and the Severn Valley surrounded by hills - the Malverns in the west, the Cotswolds in the south and the Abberley and Clee hills to the northwest. The cathedral city of Worcester, home to Royal Worcester Porcelain, sits on the banks of the mighty River Severn. Worcestershire is a county of attractive villages and market towns, historic houses, lush fields and undulating countryside, watered by the small streams and rivers between the Severn and the Avon.
