Living in Tewkesbury

A historic town with lots to do 

The focal point of Tewkesbury is the 900-year-old Abbey, which sits close to the joining of two rivers, the Avon and the Severn. The town's medieval roots and Tudor roots can be seen in the ancient bblack and white timber buildings in the High Street. Meanwhile the twice-weekly market, monthly farmers' market and several Food and Arts Markets each year keep the town alive and buzzing. With a new home here you'll never be short of things to do.

Great local amenities

Despite its historic roots, Tewkesbury has everything you need for daily life. Independent shops sit side by side with national brands. There are three supermarkets for your weekly shop - Tesco, Aldi and Morrisons. There's a local leisure centre, or if you like being active outdoors, you could go paddleboarding on the River Severn. There’s also a sailing club, and the town is on Route 45 of the National Cycleway Network. For something less energetic, boat trips on the River Avon are a wonderful way to see the sights.

Transport networks

There’s no problem getting out and about from Tewkesbury. The M5 is your go-to motorway, just outside town. It puts Birmingham just over an hour away, Bristol just under an hour away, Worcester half an hour away, and Cheltenham and Gloucester just over 20 minutes away. The M50 will take you to Ross on Wye in an hour and a half and from there, it’s a quick hop over the border into Wales. The local train station, on the Bristol - Birmingham line, is a couple of miles outside Tewkesbury at Ashchurch.
