Tewkesbury is renowned for having one of the best medieval black and white townscapes in Britain. The crooked half-timbered houses make wandering the narrow streets of this town a fascinating experience. The 12th-century Abbey with the highest Norman tower in England, dominates the town. Its fine stained glass windows and carefully sculptured tombs still remain. Other attractions include the award winning Out of the Hat visitor centre, the fascinating John Moore Countryside Museum, the Town Museum and the Old Baptist Chapel.
