    My family and I came to see Wonka and wanted to thank all involved in what was an absolutely lovely experience for all of us. The compare, host, the food and a relaxed setting in a lovely cinema were all wonderful but I'd like to add a special mention to Marcell who served us at our table who couldn't have been more courteous or attentive, and went out of his way to make sure my family were having an amazing experience, one of which you rarely get to that level elsewhere. Marcell did all he could to make sure we were happy and enjoyed our time at your delightful cinema. It showed what a really great place it is that he and everyone cared so much. Thank you Antonia, Aaron, Nikola and Marcell, and anyone I’ve missed!

    This place is a bit of a hidden gem. Ginnie and Glyn ( sorry if ive misspelt that) do a fantastic job with the alpacas. Very knowledgeable and got us involved with feeding, walking and herding! They were brilliant with the kids (6 and 11) and took loads of wonderful photos for us to look back on. Thank you for a lovely experience.

    There may not be a single right angle in this building. The rooms are every which way, up, down, left, back, and the place is jammed full of all sorts of things. There's a cannon in the gazebo and a carousel horse in the shed. A throne here, stocks there, some guns, tools, equipment for making things you've never heard of, copies of old documents. It's marvelous. Most of all it shows us that our predecessors weren't so different; they just used different tools and methods.

    Thursday 5th October 2023, My husband and I went out for the day to The Valley Shopping Park for clothes and Christmas cards for my mother.

    We arrived and parked our car and then strolled down to the shops. We looked at Leading Labels and my husband tried on some green jeans but they fitted terribly so we did not purchase anything. It was the same with the Regatta, Fatface & Outlet shops.

    We then went to Cotton Traders, where my husband purchased a nice pair of black jeans and a black, blue, pink & white check shirt to go with the jeans, he looked really smart.

    We then went to The Garden Centre, where we purchased two boxes of Christmas cards for my mother.

    We spent a nice day here walking round the shops and it was not to busy and crowded.

    Stunning park in the banks of the River Avon, with the abbey in the background, great for just strolling around and has a family friendly nature and a great place to occupy the kids.

    We walked along two different stretches of the Avon in Evesham. We walked along the stretch from the town centre and, the next day, along the stretch from Evesham Country Park.
    We picked and ate fresh damsons growing on the bank and saw a swan with her signets.

    The Evesham Arts Centre is a great venue. There’s not a bad seat in the house. It’s small enough to be intimate but big enough to be classy and professional. The staff are great, as are facilities. If they could just stop handing out single use plastic cups to people who have a tiny bit of drink left as they enter the auditorium they’d be perfect. “A moment on the lips and a millennium in the tips” folks!

    There has been a ferry across teh river here for hundreds of years. The Monks from Evesham Abbey planted a vineyard on the terraced slopes of Clarkes Hill in Hampton. As the only bridge across the river was two miles from the vineyard, they installed a rope ferry to make the journey easier as well as a building where they could make and store the wine.

    The ferry proved popular with the villagers of Hampton and surrounding villages allowing them to reach Evesham. The ferry continued to run after the Dissolution of the Abbey, as people still preferred to cross the river via ferry. The winery was converted into a private house, rebuilt many times over the centuries.

    The ferry still works today and is one of the few surviving examples of a chain ferry. It is manually operated by pulling on a cable that is suspended across the river. When the ferry is docked at either bank the cable is allowed to sink to the river bottom, so as not to interfere with other river traffic. Now it is mainly used by walkers and mobile home owners on the Hampton side.

    It is great fun!

    In many ways there isn’t a lot to see here.... Only the bell tower survives of what was once one of the largest abbeys in England. Following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII in 1540, most of the Abbey buildings were sold and demolished for reuse as building stone. Only the Bell Tower and almonry survived along with stretches of the monastic wall and the two churches.

    The bell tower is a good example of Perpendicular architecture towering above the surrounding area. The archway under the tower lead from the town cemetery into the Monk’s cemetery.

    Being near the Almonry (excellent museum and well worth visiting) this is only a short walk from the centre of Evesham. It is surrounded by lovely landscaped gardens with trees, flower beds and lakes which run down to the river. The two medieval churches next to the bell tower were built for the townsfolk as the Abbey Church was just used by the monks.

    Don’t miss the C15th timber frame Abbot Reginald’s gateway near All Saints Church and Church House (originally the vicarage). The gateway allowed pedestrian access to the abbey from the Market Place. .

    Although it can’t rank as an absolutely ‘must see’, it is still worth going to have a look and the gardens are a good place to drop out on a sunny day.

    Set in the Abbey Gardens, near the Abbey Bell tower, this is a lovely old church. Along with its now redundant neighbour, St Lawrence, this was built to serve the parishioners of Evesham.

    Perhaps the most impressive part of the church is the small chapel to Our Lady and St Egwin set behind a screen on the south wall. It has a wonderful stone vaulted ceiling as well as carved friezes along the walls. Don’t miss the window with Prince Edward (later Edward I) standing above Simon De Montford who he defeated at the Battle of Evesham.

    The stained glass elsewhere in the church is impressive. There are images of well known figures from the Bible including the evangelists, patriarchs and Kings of the Old Testament. The Celtic saints aren’t forgotten either.

    And finally don’t miss the carving of the ’Horned Moses’ in the inner porch. ‘Horned Moses”. The name comes from a mistranslation of the Hebrew text where the word ‘rays’ (of light from the head of Moses) was incorrectly interpreted as ’horns’...

    The church is well worth a visit.

    This old church had staff on hand to welcome you and once down the steps opens up to a beautiful interior that is resplendent with colourful windows and interesting war memorials. It is airy and spacious and was a delight to visit. It is set amongst other interesting buildings and a lovely park.
