Diglis House Hotel is a privately owned and operated Grade II listed historic Worcester hotel built on the banks of the River Severn close to Worcester Cathedral. The original house pre-dates the 1600's. 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 1900's and is now popular with locals as well as providing hospitality to corporate and overseas visitors.

Church or religious building
Originally there would have been a wooden Saxon church on the site f St Peters, however no traces of it remain today. The current church building still retains parts of its original Norman building including the chancel arch which is a fine example of the Norman style. The Church was extended in the 12th century to the south. The south east window contains a very old example of stained glass work. There was another extension to the north side of the building added in the 14th Century. The tower was built in 1500 AD and the church we still see today was completed. The Vestry was built onto the church in 1973 dedicated to the memory of Edward Winslow who was baptised in this church in 1595. Edward Winslow then went on to be one of the Pilgrim Fathers who sailed o the Mayflower and he served 3 times as governor of the Plymouth colony.

One of England's loveliest cathedrals, Worcester Cathedral has been a place of prayer and worship for fourteen centuries and is dedicated to Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary. The present Cathedral building was begun in 1084. Its attractions include King John's tomb, Prince Arthur's chantry, the early 12th Century Chapter House and tranquil St. Wulfstan's crypt. Edward Winslow was educated at King’s School Worcester, which is situated in the Cathedral precinct and was at the time run by the Cathedral. He was one of ten students championed for a scholarship by the Dean of the Cathedral. His admission is listed in the Cathedral Library. At the time that he attended, from April 1606 aged 10 to April 1611 aged 15, the school room would have been in College Hall (previously the monastic refectory). Edward would have studied Grammar, Latin and Greek.
