to Tewkesbury Heritage Centre – a free attraction!
This superbly restored 17th Century building is home to our innovative heritage centre. Using our state of the art portable guides and interactive games you can get a taste of Tewkesbury’s fascinating local history and discover our beautiful architectural heritage. A wander through this charming building will take you from Tewkesbury’s earliest settlers, through the Wars of the Roses, the Civil War and the industrial revolution and into the present day.
The heritage centre is perfect for families, day visitors, groups or educational trips as well as architecture, history and restoration enthusiasts.
We are perfectly placed to visit from the Cotswolds (we are set right on the edge of this wonderful area of England) as well as from the midlands and the south west. Tewkesbury is situated off junction 9 of the M5 so we are really easy to get to. The Heritage Centre is a free tourist attraction so please make sure you come and visit us when in the area. There are lots of other things to do in Tewkesbury such as visiting the wonderful Abbey or take in a leisurely river trip so you can make a full day of your visit or even a short break.
