Lying in south west Warwickshire is the picturesque Roman town of Alcester. The town centre boasts some of the finest Tudor buildings and the whole area is steeped in history and some beautiful natural surroundings. In the heart of Shakespeare country it is no wonder that many visitors compare Alcester to Stratford on Avon and seem to appreciate Alcester all the more for its timeless surroundings. Nestling alongside the River Arrow the street scene is very much as it was in medieval times and if you are visiting then a trip to the church of St Nicholas is worth the effort. The church of St Nicholas dates back to the 14th century although it is said that a church has been in this location since the 11th century, whilst the hall is said to date from the 17th century. For the visitor there is a delight around every corner and a trip around the heritage trail will reveal more of the town’s history and its buildings and if a this becomes too tiring then there are plenty of old inns and hostelries to enjoy whilst the traditional stores in the town centre have, in the main, retained their independence and offer a wide range of goods. If you have the time then visits to Coughton Court and Ragley Hall are also worth the effort.
