Worcester has always been popular with Royalty, hear how
some were angered by local road tolls whilst others wished to
remain within the City forever!

It was never easy looking after Royalty, however, and you will discover how the City was nearly bankrupt when entertaining
some of its prestigious visitors!

We had an amazing tour with Paul. He is so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Worcester history and there is a lot of it. He took us to some of the earliest buildings and pointed out some that had been "modernized" but if you looked closely you could see the very old timber frames. We learned about the different periods of Worcester's history and the signing of the Magna Carta. The tour ran just under 2 hours, easy walking. I was so busy listening to Paul that I didn't take any photos so we quickly retraced the route in the morning to capture interesting sights.

We were treated to 'A right Royal Tour' by Paul of Discover History last night. It was such fun and Paul has a superb way of making it exciting and interesting. Paul does many different tours of the city and it is well-worth coming along to take part.
