Tetbury in the Gloucestershire Cotswolds
Welcome to the Tetbury web site which contains details on Tetbury accommodation (Tetbury hotel and bed and breakfast information), attractions in the Tetbury area and other information on this Cotswold town.
Tetbury is a wonderfully preserved Cotswold town which can be found 10 miles south west of Cirencester.
Tetbury is centered upon the mid-17th century Town Hall or Market House which is supported on three rows of Tuscan pillars. It has a stone roof and a cupola topped by a weathervane with gilded dolphins.
South from the square is St Mary's Church, an 18th century church built in a gothic style rather than the Georgian style of the time. Its tall, slender spire can be seem for miles around and rises to 186 feet (57 metres). The magnificant interior of the church includes rows and rows of box pews, each with their own entrance.
The town centre of Tetbury (which is part of a route that has been used for over 800 years)) is full of 17th and 18th century buildings and many of these buildings have become listed. Tetbury itself was designated as an outstanding conservation area in 1971.
Tetbury has strong Royal links through Highgrove and Gatcombe Park. Highgrove, home to the Prince of Wales is just a short drive from Tetbury and Gatcombe Park, home to the Princess Royal is also nearby.
Further Royal links extend to the nearby Badminton Park, home to the world famous annual Badminton Horse trials.
Tetbury is truly a Cotswold jewel and should be visited by anyone planning to visit the Cotswolds.
