Worcestershire Information

Worcestershire is one of England's most beautiful counties with many Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Worcestershire offers superb family attractions, great leisure facilities, culture, history and heritage. From the majestic Worcester Cathedral to the beauty of the Malvern Hills and from peaceful Vale of Evesham to the Spa town of Droitwich.

One of the more unique ways to explore Worcestershire is on a narrow boating holiday cruising the Worcester and Birmingham Canal. The Worcester and Birmingham Canal was opened throughout 1815 and connected Birmingham directly to Worcester.

A guide will take you around the Royal Worcester Visitor Centre talking through techniques of past and present. See the skilled artists and work and have a go at painting your own plate. The shops stock a wide range of quality china, porcelain and gift ware with great savings and special offers throughout the year and the Seconds Shop offers a huge selection of quality seconds at greatly reduced prices.

Visit Stourport-on -Severn, the only town in Britain built solely as a consequence of the canals. It was here that James Brindley built the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal to link the River Severn with the Trent and Mersey.
