Worcester Cathedral

Worcester Cathedral is the cathedral in Worcester, England; situated on a bank overlooking the Severn River.

The Cathedral has the distinction of having the tomb of John I in its chancel. Before his death in Newark, John had requested to be buried at Worcester.

The cathedral has a memorial, Prince Arthur's Chantry, to the young prince Arthur Tudor, who is buried here. Arthur's younger brother and next in line for the throne was Henry VIII. Worcester Cathedral was doubtlessly spared destruction by Henry VIII during the English Reformation because of his bother's Chantry in the cathedral.
