Evesham is a picturesque town with a great shopping offer set along side the beautiful Abbey Park and the River Avon. You’ll find high street names such as Bon Marche and Sports Direct alongside fascinating independent stores and a great selection of café’s and restaurants. The Saturday Charter Market draws traders from across the UK and has become a key attraction for local shoppers as well as attracting visitors to the Vale of Evesham.
There is no more beautiful way of exploring the Vale of Evesham, and beyond, than by cruising the River Avon in anyone of the number of craft that are for hire from Evesham’s riverside - several of which provide their own commentary on local sites of interests and nature reserves. Equally interesting are the delightful pubs and hotels that lie along the riverbanks - each one tranquil and giving a unique perspective of the Vale.
The riverbanks are lined with avenues of Lime trees and cater for walkers, anglers and boaters alike - as well as being the main venue for the town's annual Asparagus Festival beginning 23rd April, the VE Vintage Festival and Morris Festival in June, the River Festival and Festival of Sport in July and the Evesham Angling Festival in August.
As the river loops around Evesham it passes under the new Abbey Road Bridge which was completed in 2014.
