Worcester is the most central point of the Cape Winelands District, the focal and economic hub of the Breede Valley. Tucked away at the foot of the magnificent Brandwacht and Langeberge mountains, the town’s beauty is complimented by vineyards and luscious green valleys.
Worcester forms part of the Cape Route 62, the longest wine route in the world, which offers not only award winning wines, but also jaw-dropping scenery. Worcester’s wine making tradition dates back more than 250 years and therefore serves as a well-deserved stopover to experience fantastic wines, excellent cuisine and the world famous Boland hospitality.
Worcester, with the Breede- and Hex Rivers flowing on either side of the town, falls within the transition habitat of Fynbos & Succulent Karoo – therefore having the best of both! Worcester is home to the Karoo Desert National Botanical Garden situated against a spectacular backdrop of mountain peaks.
