Set in the heart of the Vale Of Evesham, it has a wealth of history and heritage. The impressive medieval Pershore Abbey was founded in 689AD by King Oswald. Later, in 972AD, a charter was granted by King Edgar.

Most of the Abbey’s architecture is from the 13th century and today it is dominated by the tall pinnacled tower. With the River Avon, Pershore is the perfect place for a relaxing, enjoyable visit for those looking to escape from the busy hustle and bustle of large cities, with wonderful gardens stretching down to the water’s edge.

Pershore is a town renowned for its independent shops which offer the discerning shopper an extensive range of purchases. There are also many specialist shops, an undercover market and welcoming pubs and restaurants.

During August, visitors will be able to purchase the town’s most famous fruit – the Pershore plum – that is also celebrated during a month-long award-winning festival.
