We Think Worcester is the Best City in the UK

The expert team at our luxury hotel in Worcester tell you why

Worcester is an area of outstanding beauty and history; it has even been ranked one of the top 10 destinations in the UK for heritage, but that’s not the only reason the team at our unique hotel in Worcester loves it.

Here are 5 reasons why we think Worcester is the best city in the UK…

The Great Outdoors

Aside from its beautiful rural landscape and patchwork fields, Worcestershire is home to the breath-taking Malvern Hills, Worcester Woods Country Park and Gheluvelt Park. If you enjoy the great outdoors, Worcester has a great range of places to walk, play golf, go mountain biking and horse riding, all of which are just outside the city and provide hours of entertainment for children and adults alike.

History and Heritage

Worcester is a great place to learn about times old and has played a huge part in shaping the Britain we live in today. See Worcester’s rich history for yourself through its beautiful landscape, cobbled Tudor streets and charming architecture. You can visit the carefully restored and refurbished Grey Friars House and Garden, built in 1480, or visit our world-famous cathedral, with its own tombs, medieval cloisters, ancient crypt, chapter house and magnificent Victorian stained glass.

The Local Produce

Worcester is renowned for its delicious local food and drink, not to mention Worcester Sauce. Not only did Worcester make cheese on toast even better, it has a great selection of modern and traditional eateries in the surrounding area. We even have our own Worcester Food Festival. Feeling peckish? Why not visit the Pear Tree Restaurant, one of the finest restaurants in Worcester, for some quality Worcester fayre? With far reaching aspects of the Worcestershire countryside and the Malvern Hills beyond, it’s no wonder our guests love it.

A Day At The Races

We love that Worcester is one of the few cities in the UK with its very own racecourse. Horse racing has taken place here for over 300 years. Take a punt on your favourite foal at Worcester Race Course. Some might say the racecourse is Worcester’s “mane” attraction.

A Place To Indulge

Malvern and the surrounding area of Worcester have been on the map as top places for rejuvenation and spa treatments since the 19th century. The beneficial properties of the Malvern waters and historic spa have been reported for over four hundred years. Why not treat yourself to a relaxing treatment at our Malvern View Spa? With a wonderful range of Temple Spa treatments, which are also available to buy, you won’t regret indulging in some pampering during your visit to Worcester.

If you are planning on spending a weekend at our Worcester hotel, we hope this guide will help you to make the most out of your visit. We’re sure you will soon love Worcester as much as we do.
