a few of our favourite things...
Worcester is a beautiful Cathedral city with lots to see and do, and no. 12 is ideally located perfectly for looking around.
places to eat and shop
Next door to no. 12 is the Talbot pub which is great for a quick meal or drink. As you walk into the city you will pass lots of small independent restaurants, pubs and shops for you to pop into before reaching the pedestrianised city centre with the main high street stores.
A few of our favourite places to eat (but really there are too many to list):
- Ostlers at no.1 for seasonally sourced food
- Fuegos for great pizza
- The Olive Branch for Meditarranean food
- Ashleys for a mean curry
- The Burger Shop for the tastiest burgers
- Ounce Bar and Kitchen for amazing steaks

And if you fancy something really different why not try an Escape Room?
If you want to venture out from Worcester you may wish to take a walk up the Malvern hills, visit Broadway and it’s tower, take a look at the birthplace of Edward Elgar or just take a walk in the vast amounts of Worcestershire countryside.
