The time has come, unquestionably, for you to have an Afternoon Tea in Worcester. This city finds itself in the county of Worcestershire, England, some 20 miles from Hereford, 27 miles from Gloucester, 30 miles from Birmingham and 100 miles from London.
The River Severn (the longest river in Britain) flanks the western side of the city centre, overlooked by Worcester Cathedral. Brimming with history and heritage, as well as plenty of Afternoon Tea Worcester establishments, a fun day out here is all but guaranteed.
Historically, Worcester’s ideal position on trade routes ensured its swift development very early in its story. Originally a settlement founded by the Angles of Mercia in the 7th century, it went on to become a fortified town during the reign of King Alfred.
Most famous, though, is the part it played in the English Civil War. In particular, the decisive Battle of Worcester led to the defeat of Charles II’s Royalist forces and, ultimately, brought the conflict to an end.
Today, it’s fair to say that things have quieted down somewhat. Indeed, visiting an Afternoon Tea Worcester establishment is much preferred to igniting skirmishes!
