Bewdley lies on the banks of the River Severn at the edge of the ancient royal hunting ground of The Wyre Forest. Sometimes described as the perfect Georgian town, its riverside setting gives it an unusual air of elegance. Its railway station is on the 16-mile line operated by the steam-powered Severn Valley Railway and nearby is the West Midlands Safari Park. Bewdley is dominated by the 18th century Church of St Anne and a stout bridge designed and built by the great engineer Thomas Telford. The full story of its past is revealed at the ‘Butchers Shambles’, home to both a museum and tourist information centre.
