Visit Evesham

Evesham is a market town on the River Avon and in the Vale of Evesham, near the south-eastern border of Worcestershire and in easy reach of several local centres including Worcester, Stratford-upon-Avon (Warwickshire) and Cheltenham (Gloucestershire).

The heart of Evesham, the old town, contains lovely picturesque houses including some half-timbered medieval properties interspersed with more 'recent' (particularly Georgian) houses, and is centred around the market place and surrounding streets.

Among the highlights are the substantial 15th century half-timbered 'Round House' and the Abbot Reginalds gateway. Also in a lovely building and dating from the 14th century is the Evesham Heritage Centre - the building, called the Almonry, was once one of the buildings that serviced Evesham Abbey.

Nearby the Bell Tower from the abbey can also be seen - the abbey itself is no longer standing, following Henry VIII 'Dissolution of the Monasteries' in the middle of the 16th century, but the Bell Tower gives at least a little hint of how impressive Evesham Abbey must have been).

Evesham activities

The market in Evesham is held four days a week in the market hall (Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday), with the main outdoor market taking place on a Saturday.

When you've finished exploring Evesham itself the surrounding region - the Vale of Evesham - is known throughout England for the number of market gardens and amount of fruit and vegetables it produces and is also a very scenic region to explore, perhaps above all in spring when the fruit trees are in blossom - to the extent that there is even a designated 'Blossom Trail' to follow, starting from Evesham.

Another popular activity that fits perfectly with the slow pace in the town is to hire a boat and explore along the River Avon.

You can find more local travel ideas in the Worcestershire guide and the Worcestershire guide.
