Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

We are situated on a modern development built on the site of the historic riverside industrial area of Worcester. The area is residential only with no through traffic so remains blissfully quiet. The Severn runs adjacent to the development and links to the Birmingham Worcester canal. The apartment is in a fantastic position to access the city centre, which is a short walk on a level, paved riverside path passing Worcester Cathedral. Diglis boasts a lovely canal basin and the country's longest 'deep vertical slot fish pass' to bypass the weir, which you'll admire on walks round the river.

The city centre hosts a range of shops, restaurants and bars, independents and others. A recent development of eateries and bars underneath the railway arches is proving very popular and full of atmosphere. A very useful Marks and Spencer with food hall sits opposite a large Boots in the city centre. We're well catered for with supermarkets in easy reach, including Tesco, Waitrose and a new out-of-town Marks and Spencer, all a short drive from the apartment.

We are well placed to visit surrounding areas such as The Cotswolds, Wye Valley, Herefordshire and Shropshire. Cheltenham is a 40 minute drive, an hours drive will take you to Birmingham, Bristol, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Warwick. A little further afield are Oxford, 90 minutes and London 2 hours 20 mins. Worcester is home to three railway stations providing comprehensive links to major towns and cities.

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

You can see Worcester Cathedral from your bedroom, and the heart of the city is just a 15 minute walk along the river. Worcester will appeal to history buffs being the site of the battle of Worcester, the last battle of the civil war in 1651. The Cathedral dates to 1084 and contains the tomb of King John and the grave of Arthur Tudor, Prince of Wales. Many more historic buildings can be found in the city especially Friar Street.

You can amble to the county cricket ground, the racecourse and all the other sights in this historic city. If sport is your thing choose from Worcester Warriors rugby, Worcester Wolves basketball and the Servern Stars netball franchise. Take day trips to the Cotswolds, Bath, Cheltenham, the literary festival at Hay on Wye, enjoy wonderful food at Ludlow, Ledbury and the glorious countryside of Herefordshire and the Welsh borders. Birmingham is within easy reach and it's just over a 2-hour train journey to London.

We would like to explore the UK in 2021 whilst Covid restrictions affect international travel and will consider any city or countryside location. Once the world opens up we would love to see more of Europe and further afield. We will take very good care of your home and leave it clean and tidy for your return. We are happy to housesit if your travels take you elsewhere and have experience as house sitters.

In our home we must insist on no smoking, including on the balcony. We cannot accept pets.
