Architecture

Worcester Cathedral has been described as ‘possibly the most interesting of all England’s cathedrals, especially architecturally.’

For those interested in architecture, Worcester Cathedral is a must. Here you can see examples of all styles of English architecture from Norman, Transitional Norman, Early English and Decorated through to Perpendicular. Worcester boasts a 12th century Chapter House, thought to be the first round Chapter House in the world, and St Wulfstan’s Crypt, begun in 1084. There is evidence that some Saxon material from an earlier building was reused.

Remnants of the Cathedral’s monastic past can be seen in the medieval cloisters and the beautiful Early English Quite and Lady Chapel are not to be missed!

All guided tours will take time to appreciate the stunning building but for a more specialised architecture tour, or an upper reaches tour which explores the Cathedral at Triforium level and above, please contact the Chapter Office to book (details)
