Worcester has been named one of the best British cities for al fresco dining.

According to a recent survey, Worcester is one of the best British cities for al fresco diners.

What were the results of the study?

In the Holidu study, Worcester was ranked fifth best in England for al fresco dining and was awarded a 9.40/10 rating.

They wrote: “As the birthplace of the famous Worcestershire sauce, it’s only right that the city of Worcester is up to scratch where its culinary options are concerned!
