Tetbury is one of the larger towns in the Cotswolds. About 45 minutes from Bath, so an excellent place to have a stop and stretch your legs and grab a tea/coffee. Tetbury is the nearest town to the home of Prince Charles, who lives at Highgrove House, just a couple of miles outside the town. Highgrove is open to the public at certain times of the year by booking in advance. The house itself is not open to the public, but the extensive grounds are. It is farmed in an old fashioned and organic way, which you discover on your visit.
Records of Tetbury date back to the 7th century, when it was built as a hilltop fort. The variety of house houses date back 500 years, many of which were owned by rich wool merchants. Check out Chipping Steps, with picturesque cottages.
In the centre of the town is the marketplace. A rich Yellow/Orange building on pillars and still used today to sell market produce.
There a many local shops including Prince Charles Highgrove shop. Many local crafts and great for souvenirs. All profits go to the prince’s trust which helps underprivileged kids.
Some great cafes as well for Tea/Coffee and cakes. I have a favourite. It’s very quirky, but everyone I have taken there, love it.
