Visit Tenbury Wells to experience some amazing culture. Learn about the history that lies within the small market town and civil parish in the north-western extremity of the Malvern Hills District of Worcestershire. Tenbury Wells, situated on the banks of the River Teme and marking the border between Worcestershire, Shropshire and Herefordshire, was once said to have been called “my little Town in the Orchard” by Queen Victoria. It is now perhaps best known for its annual holly and mistletoe sales which are said to be one of the largest in the country.
Often over-looked for local well-known market towns such as Malvern and Ludlow, Tenbury is keen to put itself on the map; a town rich in heritage, culture and community. Today Tenbury is known as the international capital of Mistletoe and has an annual market in December each year. The town is also well-known for growing hops, cider apples and for the rearing of cattle and sheep, which is showcased in the annual Agricultural and Countryside Show in August each year. The town would like to be able to promote these hidden gems of heritage to a wider audience locally and internationally. By recording and sharing our heritage in this way the project will make a significant impact on the economic, social and tourism benefits of the town.
