Mention Worcester around the world and Worcester Bosch, Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce, the Worcester Warriors rugby team, Worcestershire County Cricket Club or perhaps Pitchcroft Racecourse will be talked about.
Worcester is known as the "Faithful City" for it's loyalty to the Royalists during the English Civil War and much of it's skyline, buildings and history reflect this.
It is also the birth place of one of England's greatest classical composers, Sir Edward Elgar, who is reputed to have lived in some 25 different houses and flats around Worcestershire during his lifetime. Sadly we were not around in those days to let any of them to him but we have been helping local property owners and tenants for over 12 years.
Divided by the River Severn, Worcester is positioned just a few miles off the M5 motorway (Junctions 6 & 7) within eyesight of the majestic Malvern Hills.
It is small by City standards with a population of approximately 100,000 yet it boasts a 12th Century Cathedral, a university, successful county rugby and cricket clubs and, for those Top Gear enthusiasts out there, Morgan cars are still hand-built nearby in Malvern.
Worcester truly is the best of both worlds; a lively City with a large village feel.
