A lovely old building but very difficult to get above the ground floor, unless you're fit. We struggled up to the top floor, after being asked NOT to use the lift. Not sure the climb was worth it but children would probably find the displays...More

Visited the tourist information centre for some maps and had a look around this interesting old building which has been restored for future generations to see. Informative boards explain the history of Tewkesbury and there are various activities to keep both young and old entertained!
