Tewkesbury 2¼ miles or by bus

Tewkesbury is a market town situated where the rivers Severn and Avon meet. It has retained its historic character with many fine half-timbered Tudor buildings. The 2¼ miles walk from the station is beside main roads, there's a path all the way but it is not a particularly pleasant walk and the bus is a better option.
Bus 41 from station forecourt to Tewkesbury High Street. 19 minutes journey, M-S every 20 minutes, Sun & BH hourly. Operated by Stagecoach.
