The River Severn
The longest river in England, the Severn, winds it's way through Worcester. The Cathedral overlooks the river, which is crossed by several bridges. One of these bridges is on the site where a bridge has been for centuries. There is a lovely wide walkway all along the river as well, a nice place to go to watch the water fowl and the boats. There is a small rowboat that docks behind the cathedral in the summer, to ferry people across to the other side where the cricket grounds are. There has been a crossing here at this spot on the river for several thousand years so they say.
Worcester, England (pronounced...
Worcester, England (pronounced Woo-ster). I spent 4 months here in 1989 and really got to know it well. It's a very attractive English city with a beautifu 13th century cathedral, meandering river Severn and some decent small museums. The cathedral has the largest Norman crypt in England. Worcester is probably most famous for Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce and for Royal Worcester porcelain. Both have factories in Worcester which is a nice change and both offer vistors something to see. And Royal Worcester sweetens the deal by having a discount shop on seconds especially during January and July sales. I picked up some beautiful Royal Worcester there for so much cheaper than in the USA. Walk the Shambles, a very attractive street, visit the craft centre at the river and enjoy life in a traditional British city. Worcester is kind of in-between Oxford and Birmingham.
