This lively new retail and food destination regenerates Worcester’s historic quarter.

We’ve redeveloped a 1960s shopping centre to create a vibrant retail and dining destination at the heart of the city. A new public square also provides better access and connectivity to the Grade I listed Worcester Cathedral and riverside.
The existing shopping centre has been transformed into an outward-facing mixed-use scheme making the most of the views over the public square towards the Cathedral. As well as new, larger shops and seven restaurants, there is an underground gym to entice shoppers and local people into the city.
The project, set within a conservation area, uses local materials, including stone cladding to the ground floor with brickwork at upper levels bringing gravitas to the new public square. Cathedral Square won the Revo Re:fresh Gold Award, with judges describing the transformation as “a shining and vibrant example of city centre regeneration delivered through successful public-private partnerships.”
“Cathedral Square respects its historical context while creating a vibrant destination in the city, encouraging visitors, boosting footfall and benefitting local retailers.”Brian Tracey, Operations Director
