    Worcester Weather and National Pollen Station

    by Galahad Written Jul 17, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The National Pollen Station is based at University College Worcester. They are engaged on research on such subjects as Hay Fever and they supply pollen warnings to the radio, television and medical services throughout the year. Their website also has information on the last 7 days weather in Worcester.
    Their website is :-http://pollenuk.worc.ac.uk/Next.htm

    Friar Street and New Street

    Friar Street

    Favorite thing: Worcester is filled with wonderful architecture from the elaborage Georgian Guildhall to some of the best preserved 15th and 16th century buildings on Friar Street and New Street, actually the same street that just changes names partway down, heading towards the old Cornmarket intersection. lots of crooked half timbered houses and buildings, and a couple of larger ones. Greyfriars is a National Trust museum worth looking into with a pretty walled garden behind it. There's also the Museum of Local Life, also in a black and white timbered building, on Foregate sTreet. There are old churches and a very old hospital as well. There is a small green courtyard behind an iron fence, ringed by old almshouses that are now private residences i think. This is just off a side street off Friar Street. The Commandery is a Tudor era building in excellent repair and there are a lot of lovely Victorian and Georgian buildings around as well.

    Sentimental Angels

    Favorite thing: This is a memorial to Britain's dead in the largely forgotten Boer War (1899-1902). It's located on the Cathedral grounds.
