Museum of Royal Worcester
The Museum nestles amidst the old Victorian buildings that used to be home to the Royal Worcester factory, is just two minutes’ walk from Worcester Cathedral and the city centre and is proud to hold the largest collection of Worcester porcelain in the world. The Georgian, Victorian and 20th century galleries will take you on a journey through time and our informative audio tour features the factory’s history and its remarkable workforce. It’s a lovely day out for all the family.
