DAY THREE – Tewkesbury

 

Our excursion today takes us to the medieval town of Tewkesbury with its picturesque riverside setting.  You could visit ‘Out of the Hat’, an exquisite example of a 17th century home and shop that now houses a heritage centre or take a stroll along Church Street, lined with half-timbered houses and punctuated with Tewkesbury’s famous alleyways before making our way to the beautiful 12th century Norman-built Tewkesbury Abbey, built to house Benedictine monks in 1211.  Enjoy lunch at leisure in Tewkesbury before we make our way to the beautiful city of Gloucester, here you can enjoy free time to wander around its glorious medieval cathedral which was used as Hogwarts in most of the hugely successful Harry Potter films.
