A stunning Abbey church, consecrated in 1121. Lying at the southern edge of Tewkesbury’s old town, the Abbey quietly dominates the land and skyline with its long nave, Norman arches and “probably the largest and finest Romanesque tower in England” (Pevsner). The building provides a breath-taking setting for Music Festival events.
