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.

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!
A Beautiful ancient building. So peaceful to wander round and enjoy the beautiful stained glass, modern art and church yard. The shop is also a little Gem, with some brilliant little momento and gift ideas. There is the option to pay £10 by contactless payment when entering and access for disabled is excellent. There's even a little cafe, although I didn't go in.
