Worcester Cathedral sits in the centre of the city of Worcester over-looking the river Severn. It was founded in 680 but nothing remains of the original building and the oldest part now standing is the crypt which dates to the 10th century. Most of the current building is from the 12th and 13th Centuries.
The cathedral has the tomb of King John who died in 1216 as well as a memorial to Prince Arthur, the elder brother of Henry VIII and first husband of Henry's wife Katherine of Aragon. It is believed that the cathedral was spared the worst of Henry's destruction during the Reformation because of the significance of his brother's memorial.
The cathedral is open all year round and charges no admission fee - although of course donations are encouraged. Tours are available for a small fee. Opening hours are from 7.30 am to 6 pm daily.
The Bancroft Gardens are located at the river Avon, directly in front of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. The Garden is home to Lord Gowers memorial of William Shakespeare but also features a 15-century stone bridge and the Country Artists fountain. The garden is popular with street entertainers and offers the possibility to take a boat trip on the river and the canals.
Anne Hathaway's Cottage
Anne Hathaway, Shakespeare's wife, has spend her childhood in this timber framed cottage and young William came to visit her here during their romance before their marriage. The former farmhouse dates back to the 15th century but some of its building structure suggests that its origins date back much further than this. It is possible to take a tour of the house which is administered by The Shakespeare Trust and you can see the bed in which Anne was born and a wealth of original features. Also open to the public is the traditional cottage garden which has won several awards.
There are a tea room, free parking facilities and gift shop on site. Due to its structure the house offers only limited access for wheelchair users but it is possible to take a virtual reality tour on site.

The Cotswold Way is a designated 'National Trail' that runs along the Cotswold Escarpment for a distance of 102 miles between the Gloucestershire village of Chipping Campden and the town of Bath. The starting point - or end point, depending on which direction you are going - is outside the Town Hall in Chipping Campden, where it is marked by a large stone with a plaque.
Whilst the Cotswold Way has been actively promoted as a long distance path, it was only in 1998 that it received government endorsement to be developed as a National Trail and it was launched as such in 2007, making it the newest of the 15 specially designated trails.
Leicester has been a market town for over 700 years. Today the Leicester market is a bustling cosmopolitan mix of over 300 stalls (fresh produce, books, leather goods, clothing) in the heart of the city. It is the largest covered market in Europe. The family of a local football celebrity who started his professional career with Leicester City FC are still fruit and vegetable traders here.
In the centre of the market is the old Corn Exchange building, built in 1850 and flanked by stone steps. This now serves as a restaurant and bar. Outside is a stature of the Duke of Rutland.
Adjacent is the Indoor Market hall which houses the fish market and a delicatessen. The original ornately designed Fish Market hall which had distinctly cast iron pillars was closed in the mid 1970s but was retained as part of the new structure.
It can be approached from Cheapside (adjacent to the Clock Tower); from the corner of Granby Street and Horsefair Street and from any of the narrow streets and arcades leading from High Street and Hotel Street.

Jewry Wall and Roman Baths
Leicester is steeped in history and there are many ancient monuments and places of historic interest, particulary to the south and west of the city centre. It was originally a Roman settlement (Ratae Coritanorum) where the Foss Way crossed the River Soar.
A five minute walk away from the Clock Tower is the Jewry Wall, one of the largest surviving pieces of Roman building in the country and one of Leicesters most famous landmarks. It consists of a wall with two arched doorways which form the entrance to the Roman baths. The foundations and outline of the baths are laid out at the foot of the wall.
The Leicester Museum of Archaeology stands within the grounds housing displays of the Leicester area from prehistoric to mediaeval times. Its large Roman collection includes mosaics and wall paintings. The museum also shows a multimedia presentation The Making of Leicester the story of Leicester and its citizens from the Iron Age to the year 2000.
