A Market Town Full of Life Complemented by the Countryside
Founded around an 8th Century abbey, Evesham is a town that has a rich heritage, being part of a great forest and home to just a few dwellings, churches and the river Avon at its beginning. Now, it is a thriving town that has retained its character but offers an arts centre, cinema, plenty of places to eat, drink and shop and a rich offering of events and things to do. From guided town walks, to Medieval festivals and homely pubs to independent boutiques, it is a unique place to live. Local amenities are plentiful, with a Post Office, Tesco supermarket and doctors' and dental surgeries all nearby.
In Spring1 there are dazzling displays of blossom from the many acres of plum and apple trees, and the countryside views are unrivalled. The River Avon is a major attraction, with recreational areas offering fishing, walking and boating. From June to September, the Victorian bandstand in Abbey Park is host to Sunday afternoon music - the perfect setting for enjoying a lazy Summer afternoon.
