This small town bounded by the swift-flowing River Severn is famous with sightseers wishing to glimpse the so-called Severn Bore tidal wave.

Westbury Court Garden is a unique Dutch-style water garden.

Restored by the National Trust, it has two canals set among formal flowerbeds and box hedges and was originally landscaped between 1696 and 1705.

Ashelworth Tithe Barn, a second National Trust ‘attraction’, is nearby.

The medieval Church of St Mary de Crypt in Southgate Street has been much restored. It has a peal of eight bells cast by Rudhall, the famous Gloucester bell founder.

Inside the church is the font where George Whitefield, the preacher, was baptised.

He was born in the city and attended the St Mary de Crypt Grammar School next to the church.
