Tewkesbury is generously endowed with late medieval half-timbered buildings, which make the town very attractive to look at as you walk through its streets and down its alleyways. The John Moore Museum is located in one of the 23 houses that constitute an extraordinary sequence...More

I must confess to having no idea who John Moore was, I do now! Quirky three storey small museum of natural history with local artefacts. Lots of stuffed animals and birds (all of whom died naturally or by accident!). More interesting is the Tudor Shop...More

Beautifully restored building with lots to discover about John Moore and the countryside around Tewkesbury. Don't miss the Secret Garden.

The building alone is something special, amongst the oldest in Tewkesbury. The first set of stairs were a little tricky for my mom, but the second set were much easier for her to manage. Having grown up about 7 miles away, I found all the...More
