Victoria Pleasure Gardens
Mill Street           Tewkesbury


The Gardens are bordered by the Mill Avon at the southern end of Tewkesbury right  by the Abbey Mill at the bottom of Mill Street, behind the Bell Hotel.


You can also reach them from the Gloucester Road car park and from Gloucester Road itself opposite the Abbey gatehouse.

The Abbey Mill

The Abbey Mill is a dominant feature of the gardens. Its picturesque shape derives from the eighteen century though the Mill itself is probably as old as the Abbey itself.

What you will find.

The gardens  are much more colourful than the Google map suggests The flower borders and rose beds are  really vibrant in summer and there are great views over the Ham  to the Malvern Hills.

Other Local Attractions

The Abbey is almost on the doorstep, the Bell Hotel is absolutely adjacent and the main shopping area is within five minutes’ walk along the streets or along the banks of the Mill Avon.

Visit our Local Shops

Along Church Street you will find several tea and coffee shops as well as friendly boutiques selling distinctive clothing and gifts.

The Bell Hotel in the 1930s. It looks much the same today and probably has not changed much in appearance since it was built.

The gardens are open at all times  and there is no admission charge. They are accessible to wheelchair users and the paths are level.


They are owned and run by the Borough Council who can be contacted at the Council Offices, Gloucester Road, Tewkesbury.



The gardens are periodically flooded, especially in the winter and care must be taken when the paths are slippery after the floods have receded.
