Owner description: We're the new destination for shopping, leisure and adventure right in the heart of England. The Valley is packed with good stuff, in fact there's 125 acres to discover and explore - with all the biggest brands and unique boutiques, right on the River Avon. An eclectic mix of retailers, centred in a relaxed retail village, The Valley is home to designer fashion brands, outdoor specialists and local crafts and produce. The Valley offers a range of great places to eat and drink, from relaxed bistro dining to a comforting roast dinner, and with a wide range of fresh local produce our farm shop is the perfect place to purchase your picnic essentials. The Valley Castle Adventure Playground and our very own narrow gauge railway mean there's something for the whole family to enjoy. With cycle paths, country walks, and over a mile of serene riverbank, our outdoor lifestyle shopping destination is truly unique. Just five minutes drive from Evesham town centre, ideally located on the A46, with free parking seven days a week, why wait to discover something new at The Valley?

Evesham country park is a great place to go with the family. There is shopping for everyone, a small steam railway and a beautiful animal sanctuary that will appeal to everyone.

There is no better way to spend a nice sunny day than visiting the animals which include otters, meerkats and reptiles. You can also feed some of the animals including the goats, sheep and deer.

The train is a miniature railway but is run with all of the charm of an original steam railway. The track takes you on a journey through Evesham orchards.

Putting the shops to one side overall the experience is fantastic for families and The Ark and The Evesham Vale Light Railway add to whole experience.

A lovely place to visit, a choice of shops, food, clothes, books, garden centre, a more relaxed place to wander round. The cafe in the Garden Centre area is large and although we only had a coffee the food looked good, There is a train as well (good for the kiddies). A nice place to have a chill out. Plenty of parking,

Has a bit of something for everybody. Great vistas and walks down to the River Avon. There is also a fishing pond. For the kids there is a narrow gauge train (that operates on weekends and school holidays) that rides through the orchards with a stop halfway out complete with picnic tables and great views over the Vale of Evesham There is the Ark a small animal rescue/petting zoo , a large picnic -kite flying area with kite enthusiasts and sales and an ice cream stand.

Additionally there is the huge garden centre that sells just about everything and has a large rather decent cafe attached. People arrive by the bus load on weekend mornings so the cafe gets very crowded.

There is a small number of shops, organic fruit and veg, Julian Graves and a few outlet type stores. There are also special events throughout the year like craft shows and such.

So if you are staying nearby and looking for a peaceful place to walk, give the kids or dog a run and have a nice picnic this is the place. Plenty of parking, toilets and great views.
