Tetbury Things to Do

  • Colourful shrub

    This colourful specimen is in the Old Arboretum, and there are many paths to follow, and plenty of seats to stop for a rest.Dogs (except for guide dogs) are not allowed into this part of the Arboretum. (allowed in Silk Wood though).

  • A chilling tale

    As I was doing a bit of research on the Tudor architecture (here shown) I came across this little gem."Just out of Tetbury is Chavenage House, a grand Elizabethan mansion built in Cotswold stone. The front is little changed since 1576. The present owners, the Lowsley-Williams, are connected to the original Stephens family by marriage.They will be...

  • Westonbirt National Arboretum

    Just down the road aways from Tetbury is the National Arboretum which we actually visited before getting to Tetbury.I enquired from the staff at our accommodation as to what time they opened. She replied 10 a.m. but she told us you can go any time. As time was of the essence we departed and reached the aboretum around 9.30 a.m. We were the fifth...

  • The colour of Tetbury

    During the course of my trip to England I spent hours just walking along streets and admiring the architecture and colour of the pub fronts with their flowers and the ivy hanging off the walls. Here are a couple of examples from Tetbury, they're on the same wall as the clockmaker's sign on the opening page but the opening one is one of my...

  • The chuch

Building of the new church at the same location commenced in 1777 and, incorporated the tower and spire from the old church. The architect was Francis Horne of Warwick, and...

  • Cotswold stone

    If you have been seeking the raw facts about that eye-pleasing beige rock that so many buildings are constructed of in the area then here it is in black and white."Cotswold Stone is an oolitic limestone – an organic sedimentary rock consisting of microscopic spherical particles, each a nucleus of a grain of sand or shell, around which calcium...

  • Main street, main stream

    Basically, the majority of shops are along the main street so it's a matter of finding a carpark for which you'll have to pay most days though Saturday afternoons and Sundays are free.Then again, that's when the tourist information centre is closed!

  • How much is that doggie in the window

    Had to love this. We were strolling down the main street, past the much touted antique shops, when we came across this scene in a shop window.I mean, what other heading did you expect me to give it?There were actually two dogs but the younger one was obviously more keen to do other things while the older dog was content to maintain his recumbent...

  • The royals and history

    When Prince Charles and Princess Diana made their home at Highgrove House in Tetbury, the town was elevated to country-wide, if not world-wide fame. It was said that he adored the countryside and all its pursuits; that she was a London girl who felt stifled in the country.Certainly, they became familiar figures in the area, and tourism increased...
