St Swithun’s is a grade 1 listed building situated in the heart of Worcester City Centre. There has been a church on this site since at least the twelfth century, a new tower was built in the 15th century and the nave was remodelled in the 1730s and has remained intact since then.
We welcome you to come and explore this fine example of a Georgian nave or to experience one of our events. Our East entrance opens up onto The Shambles and the west entrance at the base of the tower is on an alley known as Church Street.
Accessibility: There is wheelchair access at the west entrance at the base of the tower.
We regularly host events at St Swithun's so please check our What's On page before visiting to make sure we are open.
