After a good long sleep and getting adjusted back to UK time it was off down to Worcester Cathedral for a walk around. We happened to be in town during the Three Choirs Festival, so there were lots of events going on.
This part of the Cathedral (the altar) always strikes me as odd, with the very classical architecture and the garish ‘modern’ stitchery below.
The ceiling is simply spectacular.
There is even a little cart you can push around with an angled mirror on it so you can view the ceiling without craning your neck.
The glorious East Window.
One of the many sculptures.
Light a candle and pray.
It’s is a beautiful building.
After that we headed outside to check out some of the music and have some local Bennetts Dairy ice cream!
After that it was off round the corner to Royal Worcester Porcelain, always an interesting place to visit.
They were having a clearance sale and we managed to get a whole Spode (Party Time) set for Â£1 per piece!
Then a short walk back through the city.
Dinner was some poached salmon with boiled potatoes and fresh garden veges.
Finished off with a big box of cheese!
Continental Selection – yums!
More coming soon.
