Coach Tours - Coach Hire Worcester
People who want to experience a day out that they will never forget are sure to love to luxury of arranging Coach Hire Worcester and heading to the charming town of Evesham. Partly due to its picturesque setting on the bank of the famed Avon River, Evesham is fast growing in popularity among tourists. The roots of this busy market town can be traced back to the 8th century and the town offers a wealth of historic buildings to explore.
Perhaps the biggest attraction in Worcestershire is the remains of Evesham Abbey, founded in 709 AD on the spot where the Virgin Mary is believed to have appeared to a swineherd. The town grew around the abbey, which was dissolved during Henry VIII’s dissolution of the monasteries in 1540. Visitors to the abbey can check out the twin Churches of All Saints and St Lawrence as well as the 16th century bell tower. These buildings provide an impressive backdrop to Abbey Park, which has grassy banks and colourful flowerbeds that stretch to the river.
Another notable building in Evesham that is worth a visit is the Almonry, a great example of early English architecture. Dating back to 1400, the Almonry is now home to the town's Tourist Information Office and Heritage Centre, where you will find a museum with 10 rooms of exhibits relating to the area’s history, including a model of the abbey. One enjoyable way to spend the day in Evesham is by the river, a major draw for boaters and anglers. While there, hop on the Hampton Ferry, the country's only rope-operated ferry that is still in use.
For shopping, head to the newly refurbished Riverside Shopping Centre or the pedestrian area of Bridge Street. From here, you can walk to High street and Vine Street to check out a variety of shops in a quaint setting. No matter how late you plan to stay out, you can be sure that the driver of your Coach Hire Worcester will be ready and waiting to take you back home.
