Local Attractions - Surrounding Areas

The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds is an area of natural beauty and is well known for gentle hillsides ('wolds'), outstanding countryside, ancient limestone villages, historic market towns and for being so 'typically English' where time has stood still for over 300 years. There are countless places to see with some of the big guns being Broadway, Chipping Campden, Morton-in-Marsh, Burford and Bourton on the Water. The little known village of Broad Campden which is not far from Chipping Campden is well worth a drive though as is Lower Slaughter near Stow–on-the-Wold.

Ragley Hall

Ragley Hall, one of England's earliest and finest Palladian mansions and home to a wonderful collection of art, porcelain and furniture. Ragley Gardens occupy 10 hectares and surround the magnificent Ragley Hall. As the seasons change, so do the gardens – visit the Snowdrops and Winter Garden in February, the tulips and daffodils in March and April, the Alpines and Spring Meadows in May, the Rose Garden in June and July and the Prairie Garden late summer.

Alcester - Historic Roman Town

Only 7 miles west of Stratford upon Avon, Alcester is an ancient Roman town set in a beautiful part of south-west Warwickshire. The original settlement dates back at least to Roman times and there are many archaeological sites of interest in the town and surrounding area. The high street is reminiscent of a by gone era and preserved Tudor cottages and other historical buildings, including St Nicholas' Church which dates back to the early 1100's.

Coughton Court

Home to the Throckmorton family for 600 years, this finest of Tudor houses stands testament to a family's courage in maintaining their beliefs.

Packwood House

Containing a fine collection of 16th-century textiles and furniture, and the gardens haverenowned herbaceous borders and a famous collection of yews.

Birmingham Back to Backs

An atmospheric glimpse into the lives of the ordinary people who helped make Birmingham an extraordinary city. On a fascinating guided tour, step back in time at Birmingham's last surviving court of back to backs; houses built literally back-to-back around a communal courtyard. Moving from the 1840s through to the 1970s, discover the lives of some of the former residents who crammed into these small houses to live and work. With fires alight in the grates and sounds and smells from the past, experience an evocative and intimate insight into life at the Back to Backs. A great day out and it's next to the Birmingham Hippodrome so why not take in a show later that day.

Warwick Castle

Warwick Castle was purchased by the same company that own Madame Tussauds in 1978 and has grown into a major tourist attraction. The feedback from our guests varies, some comment on a great day out, others say that it's too commercial and is also too expensive. Tickets start from £26.50 per adult. This being said it is still a magnificent castle.

Evesham Regal Cinima

Evesham Regal, recently restored by volunteers and the English Heritage bringing this building and its beautiful interior back to life. It really is a fantastic experience. You can order a pre film cheese board or a bottle of wine from the bar to enjoy whilst watching the film. The cinema has two bars and you sit it very comfortable seat with lots of leg room. 41 Port St Evesham, Worcestershire WR11 3LD. Tel. 01386 421007
