Full dedication: Cathedral Church of Christ and the Blessed Virgin
Became a Cathedral in 680
A Saxon Cathedral was built here very early on and a monastery founded nearby. In 1084 the only Saxon Bishop left after the Norman Conquest, Wulstan, began work on constructing a massive Norman-style Cathedral overlooking the River Severn.
Over the ensuing centuries this evolved into one of the best Cathedrals in the Midlands. King John is buried here.
Worcester is probably the most rewarding of the Three Choirs Cathedrals and is best viewed from the ancient foot ferry across the Severn which goes from the grounds.
