  King Charles' house
by leics
 
 

Worcester stayed loyal to the Royalist cause during the English Civil War. This house, in New Street, is where King Charles l hid after the Battle of Worcester (1651). He managed to escape through the back door but did not, in the end, escape execution.

The house is now a restaurant, complete with dungeon.
