This attractive Georgian town nestled on the River Severn in an area with a rich agricultural and industrial history. It provides a gateway to the Wyre Forest itself and the English–Welsh borderlands known as The Marches.

Retaining its unique charm with a wealth of listed buildings, at its heart is the much acclaimed Bewdley Museum where you can see local crafts people at work, adjacent to the wonderful Jubilee Gardens and Community Orchard.

The museum also houses the award-winning Tourist Information Centre where staff are on hand to help you make the most of your visit including discounted tickets to major events, attractions and memorabilia such as West Midland Safari Park and Severn Valley Railway.

The ancient woodland of the Wyre Forest and National Nature Reserve surrounds Bewdley to the west of the town, providing excellent opportunities to discover a rich diversity of wildlife, forest flora and fauna, a great place to visit for natural colour and even the Go Ape, hire wire experience.

A host of interesting trees are also set within the nearby Arley Arboretum.

Severn Valley Steam Railway calls at the town, so you can jump on and go by vintage train in one direction to Kidderminster or neighbouring Bridgnorth in Shropshire in the other.
