Awe inspiring architecture, serene atmosphere and steeped in history. At one point I was the only person in there! A must for anyone of any faith or even if you have no religious beliefs? Easy to park, no fee to enter although you can make donations (which I did as it thoroughly deserved it), nice selection of gifts and friendly staff. Will definitely return 💕🙏

On our way home we stopped off to take a look inside this church, always lovely to see and read about some of its history. Building started in 1102 !! It has some beautiful stained glass windows
I’m not religious but always light a candle..

This is a stunning place to visit. I was not expecting such a huge and beautiful church with so much history, definitely worth a visit.

Visited Tewkesbury with my wife and stayed across the road from the abbey so went for a look. Very interesting place and well worth a visit.

What a stunning building. An amazing experience to walk around this abbey and soak up all the history. Just beautiful and definitely worth visiting. I’m not at all religious but you don’t have to be you can just admire the beautiful architecture. Definitely a must when in Tewksbury

Tewkesbury Abbey is the highlight of Tewkesbury - set in lovely grounds.
Use the guide and watch the video inside. No admission charge but donations welcome. We ate in the Touching Souls Cafe afterwards. Friendly service and good solid food at reasonable prices.

This was the most beautiful abbey. It felt serene, and welcoming. I loved the stained glass window, and the story it told. I also loved the silver statue of Mary. I will certainly visit again.

The abbey is quite awesome, very atmospheric. Steeped in history and wonderful to experience. Donation expected but we’ll worth it.

Lovely cathedral in impressive surroundings - really lovely interior too. Wasn't sure what to expect as I knew most other UK cathedrals but had never visited this one. Very different shape - solid, square looking but still delicate and beautiful. Love the ambulatory and choir.
