Almonry Museum and Tourist Information Centre
Built in the fourteenth century, the Almonry at Evesham was once a home to a Benedictine monk in charge of ‘alms’ – donations given to those in need. Now an eclectic museum, it explores the history of Evesham and the local area, spanning prehistory (with fossils), the medieval heritage of the old Abbey, via battles and horticulture to education – with a replica of a Victorian school room. The tourist information office can provide a wide variety of maps, leaflets, and guides – including bus timetables, and details of local walks. The almonry hosts regular seasonal events, with details of these events and exhibitions available on their website.
