    Shopping district in Worcester: So many shops...

    by tvor Written May 11, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Worcester city center, around Friar Street, New Street, the shambles and the HIgh street and all around that area is great for shopping. There's the Crowngate shopping center, the Reindeer Court center, a City Arcade, in the middle of it all as well as a few covered and uncovered markets. Quite a few streets in this area are pedestrianized as well which makes it nice. Some of the streets are wide with the newer buildings and larger shops, and the old medeival streets and markets and little lanes and alleys that lead from one to the other and the shops are smaller and more specialized. Pubs, cafes and restaurants of all types are dotted around as well.

    Royal Worcester: China and Porcelain from the factory

    by tvor Written May 11, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Royal Worcester has been making china and porcelain for centuries, since the mid 18th Century to be exact. There are factory tours and there is a museum on site as well as a great shopping area. You can shop for clearance, seconds, top quality as well as browse through factory outlet shops of crystal, dining accessories, sweets and chocolate, linens, cookware and even a shop for the rival Spode.

    What to buy: Porcelaine obviously. The clearance center has some goods that are not decorated, or partially finished but there are also good buys to be had on less than perfect finished products though i was hard pressed to find any flaws. The Seconds shop has a bit more variety and of course the bestware shop will be the top of the line. They will ship for you as well with insurance.

    What to pay: Various prices

    What to buy: I looked in all 3 shops (regular, sale and seconds) for presents, and bought an iris flower fairy plate for my mother (who is an iris judge - she came over to England for the Royal Iris Society show in May) in the seconds shop. Original price £22, mark down price £16.50, actual sale price £12.37.
    My daughter got her first cousin a cut glass vase for a wedding present.

    Gift Horse shop

    I thought this was a cute name ("Don't Look A Gift Horse..." etc), but it was closed when we went by.
