HIGH STREET HISTORIES

Worcester’s High Street has seen much history from royal visits to cavalry charges but the trade has never changed.

Great value for money at only £7.50 pp. Thought it would be a bit geeky but was really interesting. Paul was a fantastic tour guide, keeping us moving along with the history facts and tales to keep us entertained. The time flew by.
An enthusiastic guide full of knowledge and interesting facts. I will look at the High Street in a very different way next time I go shopping!
