Local Attractions

The Dewdrop Inn

A very short journey from Worcester city centre, but nestled on the edge of the glorious Worcestershire countryside you will find The Dewdrop Inn. We are located in Lower Broadheath, just a mere 6 minutes away from the bright city.

The Dewdrop is the ideal location if you are planning to visit local Worcestershire attractions, enjoy a long weekend of walking, or head to a Worcester Warriors game or WCCC match.

Below we have compiled a list of a variety of tourist attractions that are easily accessible whilst staying at The Dewdrop Inn. There is a whole host of great days out for you and your family right on our doorstep; from museums, fishing, rambling, safari parks and gardens, and great places for the kids.

The Museum of Worcester Porcelain

Lower Broadheath Fishery

Distance: 4.9 miles
John has stocked more than 3,000 mirror and common carp in Elgar and Island pools and match returns from the other four waters have shown they were unaffected with more than 100 match weights coming in at over 100lbs. In one match alone the top seven weights came in at over 100lbs and the 14 anglers who took part weighed in more than 1,100lbs of fish. Anglers should also be aware that, because there are a lot of good sized carp in all the Lower Broadheath waters, they may need to scale up their line strength.
