The town has always been an important river crossing point, the first Bewdley Bridge being constructed in 1447. Thomas Telford built the beautiful stone arched bridge, which now spans the river, in 1798.
The Tourist Information Centre, fronts the Bewdley Museum to which there is free admission, providing a perfect family day out through its varied programme of activities and events for all ages.
Numerous events including arts, beer and angling festivals and a carnival take place throughout the year. The town also hosts one of the largest inland river regattas in the country and its QEII Silver Jubilee Gardens are an ideal place to relax and unwind.
For a fun filled family day out visit the nearby West Midland Safari and Leisure Park. Drive around in the comfort of your own car or go on a guided safari bus, don’t miss the rare white tigers and white lions.
