Worcester Riverside Walk

6 miles (9.8 km)

An easy riverside walk along the River Severn from Worcester Cathedral to the nearby village of Hallow. The walk is very flat and lasts for just over 6 miles, there and back. It follows a section of the Severn Way long distance trail which runs through the city.
The walk starts next to the cathedral and heads north past Worcester Bridge to Sabrina Bridge. Cross to the western side of the river and follow the Severn Way past the Worcester Racecourse and Northwick to Hallow Park. Follow the trails through the woods to the village of Hallow where you can refresh yourself at the local pub before starting the return journey.
If you wanted to extend your walk you could continue north along the Severn Way to Grimley and Holt Fleet. You could also head south along the river to Kempsey and Upton on Severn.
Just to the south of the cathedral you can pick up the towpath of the Worcester and Birmingham Canal and enjoy another waterside walk in the city.
