TEWKESBURY HISTORY
Tewkesbury Abbey, built in the early 12th century, dominates the town and in 1471 the fields to the south saw the penultimate and decisive battle in the Wars of the Roses leading the house of York to power.  Today, the battle is re-enacted at the internationally renowned Tewkesbury Medieval Festival in July. The Arrivall - two large wooden sculptures (one show below) on the A38 Stonehills Roundabout commemorate the battle of Tewkesbury.

Many of Tewkesbury's historic medieval buildings have survived, making it one of the finest medieval streetscapes in England. Out Of The Hat - Tewkesbury's Heritage & Visitor Centre transports you back to that time and recounts the story of life in the Middle Ages - great fun for the kids too.
