The old riverside market town of Evesham is situated in the centre of the famous horticultural Vale of Evesham - the fruit and vegetable basket of England.
From the tranquil banks of the river Avon to the undulating hills and peaceful wooded slopes of the Cotswolds, the Vale offers some of the prettiest countryside in the United Kingdom.
Find out about the town's traditional roots by visiting the Bell Tower, the only major remaining building of the once great abbey, knocked down after Henry VIII closed the monasteries in 1540.
No visit is complete without a visit to The Heritage Centre at The Almonry. This 14th century building, once the home of the Abbey's Almoner, houses a wealth of information and artefacts, documenting such important happenings as the history of the great Abbey and the defeat of Baron Simon de Montfort at the Battle of Evesham in 1265.
See the Pennywhistle sculpture by Tom Harvey by the riverside in Abbey Gardens. The piece was commissioned to commemorate the start of the 2007 Evesham music festival and was carved out by using a chainsaw from a cedar log.
