8c. Worcester: Friar Street - Tudor House and Museum, Greyfriars and other medieval and Tudor buildings and continuing north up New Street for a few other fine historic houses

Scenes in English South-West Midlands

Friar Street is the most interesting street in Worcester from the point of view of exploring timber-framed buildings from the later 15th , 16th and early 17th century buildings - many are Grade I or II listed buildings.  It isn't a long street, but it is packed with numerous old buildings occupied by several independent traders and cafes and restaurants galore!  The 'pride and joy' of xyx must be the large and fine building of Greyfriars with its cafe and garden to retreat into out of the tourist bustle of Friar Street, Worcester.  As well as the Cathedral and the banks of the River Severn, this is a MUST to explore!
