Discover History

Established in 2003 by Paul Harding and Helen Lee, Discover History covers more than a million years of history and offers an interactive and hands-on experience to people of all ages and abilities.

Both Paul and Helen are professional historical performers who like to concentrate on providing historical accuracy and authenticity through demonstrating the personal lives of how our ancestors lived, worked and enjoyed their pastimes.

Visitors have the opportunity to handle both real and historically-accurate replica artefacts and to find out more by talking with experts.

Join one of the costumed guides as they walk you through the days of yesteryear, allowing you to relive the Worcester Story and the making of our Cathedral City. Hear about the Romans, the devastating Viking raids, Elizabeth I and her visit to the city in 1575 and the bloody battle of Worcester that took place in 1651.

Walks start in front of Worcester's historic Guildhall in the High Street and cost just £5 per person. Walks depart at 6pm and booking is essential. Other times are available, subject to guide availability.

Discover History offers other themed tours that are available for individuals, groups and schools. Subjects include period-specific (i.e. Medieval, Tudor, English Civil War, Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian).

Other themed tours include interests such as Battlefield Tours, Royalty, Churches, Crime and Punishment, Medical, the River Severn, Pubs, Secrets of the Old Town and Spooky Tours.
