MEMBERS' TRIP: DISCOVERING TEWKESBURY

A view of Tewkesbury Abbey

Wed 2 Oct

12th century Tewkesbury Abbey dominates this charming historic market town located beside the rivers Avon and Severn. After morning coffee (included) we will have a 90-minute guided tour around the Abbey (Nicholas Pevsner: “probably the largest and finest Romanesque tower in England”). There are various options for lunch in Tewkesbury’s medieval High Street area and the early afternoon is free to explore the town with its riverside walks and boat trips, network of alleyways weaving in and out of the narrow streets, the old Baptist Church and John Moore Heritage Museum.

This trip will depart from Redbridge P&R 8.30am, from the Taylorian 8.45am, and from Oxford Parkway P&R 9am, ending at 5.15pm.

Access: Level access to the Abbey via the main gates and the North Path. Most areas have wheelchair access apart from the Tower and the Upper Room.
