The Almonry is a beautiful C14th building in the heart of the historic market town of Evesham. Once the home of the Almoner, one of the Benedictine Monks from the Abbey, the Almonry is now the town museum, Tourist Information Centre and gift shop. The museum tells the story of Evesham and the Vale from pre-history to mid-twentieth century with a beautiful garden, ideal for sitting and relaxing. Our gift shop stocks a wide range of souvenirs, postcards, walking maps and guides, books, gifts and handcrafted goods made by local makers and crafters. The Tourist Information Centre is packed with leaflets and guides to Evesham and the surrounding area. TIC staff are on hand to welcome you to Evesham and to help you get the most out of your visit and stay.

It is what it is, what can you say about a tourist information office. The staff were friendly and the place was clean. It is a lovely old building.

This is a pleasant local museum with some interesting exhibits amongst its extensive displays. I would have preferred fewer exhibits, with more emphasis on what is special to Evesham

We spent around an hour here, but it was an hour well spent. The building is beautiful and it was fun to have a look at the history of the building and the surrounding areas, I loved the little gift shop too.

Looks small but is packed with items and information. Leave yourselves plenty of time to see it all properly. Friendly helpful staff and some good items on sale. Would reccomend a Town Tour with a local guide at £2 pp. Book here.

Hi Jackie, the Almonry costs £5 for a standard ticket, £2 for concessions (over 65 and F/T students) under 11s are free. Each ticket lasts for 12 months. I hope this helps.
