Alcester

This small market town near the Worcestershire border dates back to Roman times and as a legacy of its rich history, it features architecture from the medieval, Tudor, Georgian and Victorian eras. However, it is the town’s crooked, half-timbered Tudor-era buildings that give the town its character and make it feel like Stratford-upon-Avon without the tourists.

Points of interest in and around the town include the Roman Alcester Heritage Centre, which has exhibits detailing the town’s Roman origins, as well as several nearby stately homes.

It is only a short distance from Henley-in-Arden and Stratford-upon-Avon, which are both only 13km (8 miles) away.

Coming and going

Although Alcester does not have a railway station, it served by regular buses connecting the town to other destinations in Warwickshire and Worcestershire. Stagecoach bus route X19 is the most useful of these bus routes, stopping in Alcester en route between Redditch and Stratford-upon-Avon, which are both around a 30-minute bus ride away.
