Tetbury is a popular and lively traditional Cotswold market town, well known for its 17th and 18th Century architecture. Historically, the town was known for its antique shops but today boutique and
specialist shops, together with cafes, restaurants and bistros have come to the fore. As a result there is a bustling feel to the town with well known shops now including the Highgrove shop, Quails Delicatessen, Molo and the award winning Hobbs bakery. For more general shopping there is a Tesco superstore on the edge of the town and, twice a week, there is an open market under The Market House.
The town, once voted the third best town in which to live by Country Life Magazine, also supports a splendid parish church which has been described as having one of the best Georgian gothic designs; it has the fourth highest church spire in England.
Nearby is the world famous Westonbirt Arboretum which covers 600 acres and boasts one of the most varied specimen collections in Europe as well as some 17 miles of trails. Other recreational opportunities include golf at Westonbirt and Minchinhampton, sailing at the Cotswold Water Park, polo at the Beaufort Polo Club, motor racing at the Castle Combe circuit and there is also the Cotswold Leisure Centre in Cirencester.
Tetbury is well placed for the commuter with Kemble station and the M4 both being within ten miles. Nearby, larger commercial centres include Bath, Bristol and Cheltenham, all of which provide
excellent shops and theatres. Gumstool Hill itself is famous for its sack races which take place over Spring Bank Holiday Monday. It is thought that the races began in the 17th Century by young sheep drovers showing off to local women by running up the hill carrying a woolsack. At the bottom of the hill there is access to the rail lands and country walk which was created in 2002.
