Worcester is a cathedral city and the ceremonial county town of Worcestershire.
Worcester is famous for several things including the birthplace of Lea & Perin's well-known Worcestershire sauce.
It is also the home to the oldest surviving newspaper in the world (Worcester’s Berrow’s Journal) which dates back to 1690.
The top attraction in Worcester is Worcester Cathedral. The present cathedral church was built between 1084 and 1504 and represents every style of English architecture from Norman to Perpendicular Gothic.
The Battle of Worcester took place on 3 September 1651 at Worcester, England, and was the final battle of the English Civil War, which began in 1642. This saw Oliver Cromwell's Parliamentarian New Model Army, 28,000 strong, defeat King Charles II's 16,000 Royalists.
