About Us

Our Worcester Walks guides have one thing in common - a passion for the history of this beautiful town and they want to share its fascinating history with you!

With their enthusiasm and skills in retelling stories of old, you will be taken back to times gone by: times when kings fled the city in fear for their life, and when some of the greatest musical composers and literary artists regularly walked the very streets you too will walk.

Our guides have gained their knowledge through many routes - some are born and bred in the area and others moved here later in life. 

Our guides hold a variety of qualifications including:

  • Blue Badge Guides

  • Green Badge Guides

  • Members of the Institute and Guild of Guides

They will take you on an entertaining stroll around the medieval streets and the Worcester riverside - recounting fascinating tales of famous and infamous characters, who helped create the city we know and love today.
