Your temperature may also be requested on arrival for extra precaution.

The original house pre-dates the 1600s. It was rebuilt and later extended during Georgian times and became the home of Edward Leader Williams, the chief engineer to the Severn Navigation Commission, and his family. His son Benjamin Williams Leader was born in the house and was a famous landscape artist and friend of John Constable. It was one of the first Worcester hotels registered as an Inn in the early 1900s and is now popular with locals as well as providing hospitality to corporate and overseas visitors.
