When we arrived in Tewkesbury we walked from the car park in Station Road to the Tourist Information Centre where we collected a free street plan of the town which also shows the car parks and public toilets. It does NOT show the alleyways. If you want to do the alleyway tour buy a leaflet whilst you're in the Information Centre.
Armed with our street plan we made our way to the Abbey Church where we first had coffee in their little cafeteria before looking around. The cafeteria is adequate but nothing special.
It's a good idea to have some idea of what there is to see in the town otherwise it would be easy to miss some interesting locations as some of them, like the Old Baptist Chapel, are well tucked away. Do some research on the internet first or ask at the Tourist Information Centre.
