Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / Cotswolds / Tewkesbury / Tewkesbury Abbey
A former Benedictine monastery with the largest Romanesque crossing tower in all of Europe, Tewkesbury Abbey is the second largest parish church in the country. Of the church’s three spectacular organs, the most notable is the Milton Organ installed in the 18th century, while the most practical is the Elliot chamber organ of 1812, mounted on a movable platform. Attend a morning service to listen to the acoustics and enjoy a parish breakfast following the ceremony. Photography is restricted in the abbey. Our Tewkesbury online trip itinerary planner makes visiting Tewkesbury Abbey and other Tewkesbury attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Beautiful Abbey dating back to the early 12th century and an outstanding example of Norman architecture. The amazing interior is huge with numerous sections and has to be seen in person to be fully appreciated, including impressive stone columns, amazing roof features and lovely stained glass windows, plus much more. Highly recommended to visit!
A Beautiful ancient building. So peaceful to wander round and enjoy the beautiful stained glass, modern art and church yard. The shop is also a little Gem, with some brilliant little momento and gift ideas. There is the option to pay £10 by contactless payment when entering and access for disabled is excellent. There's even a little cafe, although I didn't go in.
Fantastic history and such a beautiful building. All staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Throughly recommend visiting. The town of Tewkesbury is also worthy of a walk around plenty of nice independent shops and cafes.
Fabulous building inside and out. Full of history and atmosphere. Lovely Xmas decorations especially the tree and shiny lecturn. Very atmospheric and reasonably warm. Cafe on site with hot and cold food, drinks, delicious cakes, friendly staff and disabled toilets. Well worth the visit.
Free to visit. Car park nexr door £1 an hour, so reasonable. Cafe on site and lots of grass areas where yiu could sit. Inside you were free to wonder around. Lots to see. Not quite as impressive as Gloucester Cathedral, but still well worth the visit, especially when combined with a wonder around Tewkesbury itself and the many lovely historical buildings or a stroll next to the canal. Definitely a place you could enjoy for a few hours, or maybe just an hour if you just wanted to see the Abbey.
