Almonry Museum & Tourist Information

Enjoy England Quality Assured Visitor attraction

The Almonry Museum & Tourist Information Centre

No visit to Evesham is complete without a visit to the Almonry. This 14th Century building was once home to the Almoner at Evesham Abbey. It now houses a unique collection of artefacts as well as exhibitions detailing such important happenings as the history of the great abbey and the defeat of Simon de Montfort (said to be one of the founders of parliamentary democracy) at the battle of Evesham in 1265.  

This ancient house is a superb example of early English architecture and the warren of rooms within the building reflects the various occupants since the Almoner was its first resident. Not only is it a most attractive building in the centre of Evesham but it has also a lovely garden where you can have a few minutes or hours with quiet reflections on how life in Evesham used to be.    

Both the Almonry and Tourist Information Centre are services provided by Evesham Town Council, and come under the managment of it.
