'Explore' worcester City

‘Explore’ worcester City

The trail starts and finishes at the Guildhall, on the High Street. This elegant eighteenth century building is one of the finest Guildhalls of its type in the country and is a harmonious blend of brick and natural stone. The examples of building stone, which are described in the guide, have been selected to illustrate both local types, usually found in the oldest buildings and more exotic rocks which became available later. The trail follows a circular route and takes about one and a half hours to complete.
