We arrived just after 16:00 - the signs said it was open until 17:00 "Sorry we're closing up already" - in fact they'd shut most of the place down early as it was a slow afternoon this sort of attitude where the convenience of the staff comes first is quite rare in the UK these days - but if you...

Spent a few hours here. Delightful staff, amazing old property.and garden. So many interesting local, historical artefacts and information including local crafts and people. Some of the presentation and lighting a little lacking..but a real little gem of a place.... AND ...unlimited revisits for a year. Think a little cafe would finish off the experience. Thank you.

I've lived in Evesham from birth until a couple of years ago and the Almonry has gone from strength to strength. Its a little tucked away which is a shame so many miss it or don't bother to go in as it is fantastic. A collection of treasures and local history its the must go to place in Evesham.

I grew up near Evesham and while we were visiting I took my children (5 &7) to see this museum that I last visited as a child 25 years ago. I didn't know what to expect but it was a great place to explore for a couple of hours. The building and it's history is fascinating on its own but... More

This place is a 'must' on any trip to Evesham. It has a variety of interesting objects and some great archaeological pieces. The garden is utterly charming and the interactive exhibit about the Mop Fair, with memories of some of the older residents of Evesham is a really lovely way of preserving social history. A great place to visit and... More

This Tourist Information Centre is a must for visitors to Evesham. Very old building and lovely little garden at the front. You can also pay to have a look around the museum inside the building. The staff are friendly and informative and there is loads of information for Evesham and surrounding areas.

Liked local flavour, interesting historical lessons, good range of items on display. Worth a look, and inexpensive at £5 which goes to a good cause.

You could lose yourself in this place for a whole day even though it's actually very small. It's full of so many interesting items that show the life and times of the people of Evesham. The entry fee is very reasonable too.

We took our son as he is doing a project on the history of Evesham and what seems like a small building outside is huge inside and theres so much to see, I would definatley recommend a visit if interested in local history, the staff are friendly and knowledgable and theres a small shop as well.

It's a beautiful old building with loads of little rooms all packed with varied and fascintaing stuff from many periods of history, especially strong on the tools and artifacts associated with old trades and crafts.
