One for the children, if they love Horrible Histories then they will love this!

Ever wondered what Worcester was like many years ago?

Well now is your chance to relive some of these thrilling events the city has seen from gory tales to happy endings.

Hear about the gory Viking raids and the even gorier tale of what happened to the poor man that missed his last boat home.

See the site where many witches were ducked into the river, find out what happened to naughty children in the Cornmarket and watch out for toilets that might get emptied into the street by the terrible Tudors.

I just wanted to say thank you and Paul for the fabulous walking tour on Sunday. The children loved it (especially the gruesome bit!) And Paul’s knowledge is immense - we were all in awe!

We booked the guided walk for my son's 10th birthday. I wondered how he would keep their attention for 90 minutes, but all the children were engrossed in Paul's stories and his passion for the history of Worcester. We have lived here many years but saw the city in a new way and learned some very interesting facts, too!
