Pictures of Tewkesbury
Tewkesbury is a town that is extraordinarily rich in history. It has an abbey that is over 500 years old and has the tallest Norman tower in England. This Abbey is reputed to also be the largest Parish Church anywhere in England. Through Tewkesbury's streets you will find Medieval buildings that are immaculately preserved and still in use today, the oldest dating back to around the 12th century. You will also find ancient alleyways and courts that have not changed since the middle ages, adding a sense of history as you step inside one to venture down to one of Tewkesbury's ancient back-streets that reveal more of England's past. Add to all this a famous battle that took place in 1471 which was the most decisive battle of the famous War of the Roses and all in all you will begin to appreciate just what the town of Tewkesbury has to offer its visitor.
