Worcester Weather and National Pollen Station
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.

University College Worcester
Favorite thing: I am currently a postgraduate student here reading 19th Century Studies. The photo is of Prince Edward at the front entrance of the University on 3.1.04 when he came to open the new Digital Arts Centre. Photo from my local radio station web site on the day after the visit.
Friar Street and New 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.
Favorite thing: Friar Street is Worcester's nicest street. It is full of timbered Tudor buildings, including Greyfriars'

A War Memorial
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.
A Medieval Cathedral in England's Green Borderlan
Favorite thing: The Cathderal certainly lives up to its heritage; it preserves the fabric of the past in a manner which is relevant to the present.
