It’s beautiful but has areas not so nice just as anywhere else. Close to Birmingham, 2nd biggest city in England. Very mixed cultures and religions.

Typical Saturday in Worcester: go to the morning market, then go for brunch in Black&White. Wonder around town, making sure to visit the cathedral and walk by the canal. Go for a nice Belgian beer in TripelB then finish the evening with a delicious meal in Globe modern bistro.

Before moving to Worcester, it is imperative that you are made aware of the flood risks here. When there is lots of rainfall, the majority of properties that line the River Severn will get flooded. This is very important information to know when buying or renting a property here in Worcester.

Worcester is a beautiful city with a good mixture of both contemporary and historic buildings, including the magnificent, Worcester Cathedral. The River Severn runs right through the centre of the city where pedestrians can walk along well-maintained pathways and cyclists can use safe cycle routes. Worcester is also famous for making porcelain, Worcestershire sauce and its racecourse.

Worcester is a small city, much like a town, which attracts quite a few tourists for its cathedral and history. It is mainly a commuters town though as many people live here and travel to work in larger cities such as Birmingham or Bristol. People are very friendly and there’s lots of great places to eat and drink.

Worcester contains a multitude of sumptuous restaurants, lavish marketplaces and a large array of pubs and bars. When moving, one should always be sure the city will suit their lifestyle; for people who want a bustling nightlife, alongside a stable and secure place to start/raise a family, Worcester is a safe bet. Boasting a large cathedral, the Worcestershire Cricket Ground and opportunities for rowing and sailing on the River Severn, this town also promises an abundance of culture and sporting activities.

When moving to Worcester, know house prices are very high, but rental prices are very low. Consider whether you need to buy a house. To clarify, In the short term it would be cheaper to rent however in the long term it would be a much better investment to buy.
