Things to Do in Tewkesbury

The historic market town of Tewkesbury is most famous for the medieval festival that it holds every year. For a town that is rightfully proud of its rich history, it is also a thriving area for modern businesses, from manufacturing companies to these Tewkesbury accountants

Tewkesbury is a popular town for visitors as it offers a blend of everything – if you want rest and relaxation, it is a stone’s throw from both the beautiful Malvern hills, and the Cotswolds area, both of which are areas of outstanding natural beauty.

If you fancy a lively night out, then it is near to the elegant and modern Regency town of Cheltenham, where you will find many bars and clubs, as well as a wealth of high-quality dining options.

So, if you are planning a visit to Tewkesbury, what are some of the things that you must do?

Visit Tewkesbury Abbey – The ancient abbey has stood in Tewkesbury for hundreds of years and survived the dissolution of the monasteries when the local people raised enough money to save it as a church. The abbey is a beautiful building, attracting many visitors who want to see the beautiful architecture, the stained-glass windows, as well as enjoy the spiritual aspect of the building. There are also some popular tea rooms next to the abbey that you can enjoy after.
