Tewkesbury

Here is the second part to the day. We moved onto Tewkesbury and visited both the town and abbey. The town as you can see is quite old and has lovely tudor style buildings. It reminds me of Canterbury, somewhat. We had lunch here in a tea shop (very scrummy!) and then went shopping. I saw an art and stationary shop which had loads of craft stuff and ended up buying some Derwent aquatones crayons and flesh coloured watercolour paint


We visited the abbey, it is very old and dates back to 1102AD more info here.

Took lots of photos for my scrapbook so can't wait to start but need to sort out packing away my craft stuff to paint our 'pink' room

In answer to your post on my blog. Our kids stop at the end of June and went back on the 18th August. I think in England they stop later.
