National Trust in Worcester Greyfriars & The Firs Elgar’s birthplace

Although Edward Elgar only spent the first two years of his life here, the Firs is the space that remained close to his heart for the rest of his life. On receiving his baronetcy in 1931, he requested the title ‘Baron Elgar of Broadheath’.

A guided tour has been arranged here, as well as tea/coffee on arrival.

We then head into Worcester for free time for lunch before heading to our next National Trust property of the day, Greyfriars’ House and Garden.
Situated in the centre of Worcester, Greyfriars was built in 1480 by a wealthy merchant, it became a home to wealthy families up until the 17th century and in 1699 a baker purchased the lease and divided the house into two. It became a mixture of homes, shops and businesses for next 200 years.
