If you’re visiting Gloucester, be sure to take the short drive to the town of Tewkesbury. This delightful medieval town has much to offer. Sitting on the River Severn, there are plenty of shops and an abbey bursting with history. It’s an attractive market town that’s well worth a visit for its independent shops and medieval history.
The drive from Gloucester to Tewkesbury along the A38 is a pleasant experience with plenty to see and do along the way. Norton Garden Centre is an ideal spot for all your gardening needs and you’ll find a cafe located inside this independent outlet.
Along the A38 just outside of Gloucester is the Orchard Park site for community living for the over 50s. For anyone interested in retirement living, visit Gloucestershire Park Homes at this site www.parkhomelife.com/our-parks/orchard-park-homes-gloucester-gloucestershire/

For families looking for fun or sports enthusiasts, not far from Tewkesbury is the Sherdon Golf Centre offering a crazy golf course and driving range.
It’s a lovely rural drive through some of the prettiest Gloucestershire countryside and you’ll pass pubs, cafes and plenty of access to a variety of villages along the way. There is also easy access to Hatherley Manor Hotel and Cheltenham if you’re looking for a sophisticated base while you explore the county.
