I love Worcester’s City Centre. It is small enough to get around from start to finish in a few hours, but has numerous shops dotted around so there is something for everyone. Like any good City Centre, the shops Worcester boasts range from high end ‘luxury’ shops like Fraser Hart, Swarovski and Phase Eight, to lower-cost and more ‘affordable’ shops like Primark, H&M and, of course, not one but two

When walking around the City Centre, I feel completely at ease. There is so much to see – the old, the new, homeware, stationery, clothes, pubs, cafés and cake shops! Mealcheapen Street is lined with charity shops and a lovely old-fashioned sweet shop Warman’s which has been there since as long as I can remember.
New Street in the day is totally different to the loud, vibrant street it transforms into of an evening, and has some nice coffee shops and eateries.
Friar Street is where you’ll find the jewels of Worcester, from the Tudor houses and museum to the niche clothes shops, Café Rouge and Nandos which is conveniently situated next to Vue and Subway.
The Shambles and the High Street run parallel to each other and are both filled with shops to satisfy even the avid shoppers – and make sure you pay Crowngate Shopping Centre a visit too where you’ll find House of Fraser, Primark, Bill’s and many more!
The modern yet traditional and homely feel of Worcester’s City Centre makes every visit worthwhile, and I could honestly never get bored of having a browse and spending some money here and there.
The pictures don’t do the City any justice – you cannot beat getting stuck into the hustle and bustle and immersing yourself into the culture Worcester has to offer.
