Curious About Worcester
Have fun discovering Worcester with two self-guided, heritage walks with an optional treasure hunt. Buy or instantly download our booklet containing two walks from https://www.curiousabout.co.uk/worcester.html then explore in your own time.
A Curious About walk is a fun and social activity for all the family and friends. Different people can take on different roles - follow the map, identify picture clues, read directions, etc - it's ideal for children from the age of 6, and if you can walk/wheelchair it, you're young enough!
Worcester is an ancient city with a modern outlook and one of the UK's less explored historic cities. There's a stunning cathedral overlooking the River Severn, host to Elgar's first performance of the revised Enigma Variations, and burial place of King John. Royal Worcester pottery made its name in the 18th century, about the time the splendid Guildhall was built. Walk down winding streets with timber-framed shops, or alongside the Severn to some beautiful gardens, or experience the Civil War at one of its museums. Whatever takes your fancy, Worcester will always inspire!
