There is no bar. The cider is dispensed direct from the cask and served through a hatch in the front of the house. If it is too cold or wet to stand or sit outside and drink you may go into the old bakehouse. The same family have owned and run the Monkey house for the last 150 years!

Worcester Cathedral is a magnificent sight as it rises majestically above the River Severn. Worcester has been the seat of a bishopric since the Seventh Century, and the Cathedral was served by monks until the Reformation. St Oswald and St Wulfstan were among the bishops. Since the Eighteenth Century, the Cathedral has been famous for its part in the annual Three Choirs Festival, the oldest choral festival in existence. Today the Cathedral is the centre of a vibrant community of clergy and laypeople, offering the praises of God each day, serving the city and diocese of Worcester, and attracting visitors from all over the world.

Situated at the heart of the idyllic Lido Park, the historic Droitwich Spa Lido is a fantastic summer’s day out that won’t break the bank! The Droitwich Spa Lido is one of the few remaining inland, open-air salt-water swimming pools in the UK.
The Lido was originally built in the 1930s and the building features an art-deco style interior. The pool itself was filled with diluted salt water, pumped from brine streams beneath the town. The salt in the water was strong enough to keep the water in the pool aseptic, without the need for additional chemicals such as chlorine. When the lido opened, it was marketed as the 'seaside come to Droitwich Spa', and the pool was heated to exactly the same temperature as the Mediterranean Sea.
