Create an itinerary including Tewkesbury Abbey
A former Benedictine monastery with the largest Romanesque crossing tower in all of Europe, Tewkesbury Abbey is the second largest parish church in the country. Of the church’s three spectacular organs, the most notable is the Milton Organ installed in the 18th century, while the most practical is the Elliot chamber organ of 1812, mounted on a movable platform. Attend a morning service to listen to the acoustics and enjoy a parish breakfast following the ceremony. Photography is restricted in the abbey. Our Tewkesbury online trip itinerary planner makes visiting Tewkesbury Abbey and other Tewkesbury attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Beautiful place was lovely walking round and taking it all in, i lit a candle and thought of loved ones I felt really at peace being inside. There wasn't a service at the time but I should imagine that during hymns the sound would be amazing beautiful organ also, really enjoyed my visit and going into the visitors shop. I recommend anyone visiting Tewkesbury should visit the Abbey.
  • Beautiful Abbey dating back to the early 12th century and an outstanding example of Norman architecture. The amazing interior is huge with numerous sections and has to be seen in person to be fully appreciated, including impressive stone columns, amazing roof features and lovely stained glass windows, plus much more. Highly recommended to visit!
