From its early origins, Worcester developed into a medieval cathedral city, and in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries into an industrial centre with a reputation for gloves, porcelain and engineering. This extraordinary history has given Worcester a proud and distinctive history, which is embodied in the many fine buildings that have shaped the city.


Worcester in 50 Buildings explores the history of this rich and vibrant community through a selection of its greatest architectural treasures. From the imposing cathedral and the Queen Anne-style Guildhall to more recent additions such as the award-winning Hive, which houses libraries, archives, archaeology and other services, this book celebrates the city’s architectural heritage in a new and accessible way. Local archaeologist James Dinn guides the reader on a tour of the city’s historic buildings and modern architectural marvels.
