Worcester Perhaps best known to most North Americans for its piquant Lea and Perrins Worcestershire sauce, Worcester is more justifiably renowned for its  magnificent cathedral and Worcester Porcelain. According to the locals, it also has the prettiest cricket ground in the country. We were expecting a maze of narrow streets and lanes among venerable period buildings, but the city was heavily renovated in the 1960s and 70s, unsympathetically according to Wikitravel, and much was lost. Fortunately some streets, like Friar Street, preserved their original period buildings and while renovated and re-purposed, they retain some of the original character and strolling the city makes for a pleasant day’s outing.
