Information about parking in Worcester
Worcester is a city 101 miles northwest of London and 31 miles west of Birmingham with a population of about 100,000. It was where the English Civil War ended with the defeat of King Charles II and is the home of Royal Worcester Porcelain. It sits astride the River Severn, which from time to time bursts its banks and floods the city. The Worcester Journal was first published more than 300 years ago and is believed to be the oldest newspaper in the world still being published (now as a free sheet). Tourism is a major revenue source for the city, raising the question: Where to park in Worcester?
