We were on a short break near Worcester so decided to try a Guided Tour of the city - not something that we would normally do.Our B&B host at the Manor Coach House organised a history tour and we met our young guide Paul at the Guildhall. The tour lasted just over an hour and a half and and gave us a first class insight into the long history of the City. Were we simply dragged round all the attractions ? No we were not !! We walked along the precincts and lanes and even the shopping arcades and were delighted with fascinating stories of Royalist and Parliamentarians merchants and Queens. To cap it all a gentleman who had just left a pub was pointed out by Paul as his old history teacher - we called out that he was doing a good job and were greeted by a broad grin and " I am very proud of him" . So are we - well done "Discover History" - well done and thanks Paul.
