ASHCHURCH for TEWKESBURY

CALLING AT... ASHCHURCH for TEWKESBURY

Tewkesbury is a town full of character. Situated where the Rivers Severn and Avon meet, it is one of the few places you will find half-timbered, black and white, Tudor-style buildings in the Cotswolds. You can enjoy the medieval streets and alleys, formed by the crammed in Tudor architecture, and take in the view of the elegant abbey from the banks of the river. 

 

A stroll along the banks followed by a fish and chip lunch by the water could be your chosen day out or a relaxing cruise along the river and then dinner at a local bistro may take your fancy. Tewkesbury has something on offer for everyone, including the medieval fayre and the food and drink festival held annually.
