The old riverside market town of Evesham is situated in the centre of the famous horticultural Vale of Evesham - the fruit and vegetable basket of England.

From the tranquil banks of the river Avon to the undulating hills and peaceful wooded slopes of the Cotswolds, the Vale offers some of the prettiest countryside in the United Kingdom.

The region is well known for its fruit and vegetable growing (especially asparagus) since medieval times.

In Spring there are dazzling displays of blossom from the many acres of plum and apple trees giving great swathes of colour. That’s why Burland Excursions always select Spring time for our annual visit, as the blossom really is quite beautiful and colourful.

A major attraction is the River Avon, with very popular recreational areas offering something for everyone from hiring fishing rods, to walking, to boat trips. Abbey Park offers a wonderful stroll Vale of Evesham through the blossom.

Find out about the town’s traditional roots by visiting the Bell Tower, the only major remaining building of the once great abbey, knocked down after Henry VIII closed the monasteries in 1540.

No visit is complete without a visit to The Heritage Centre at The Almonry. This 14th century building, once the home of the Abbey’s Almoner, houses a wealth of information and artefacts, documenting such important happenings as the history of the great Abbey and the defeat of Baron Simon de Montfort at the Battle of Evesham in 1265.

Of course, there is a lovely choice of café’s and pubs for lunch and refreshments.

At the end of the day, hop back on board our luxery coach, and relax as we take you home.
