This beautiful 14th century building was the home of the Almoner (someone who gives out alms to the poor) of Evesham's magnificent Benedictine Abbey. Dating from the 8th century, the great abbey was plundered and demolished after closure by King Henry Vlll in 1540 during the Dissolution of the Monasteries.
Now a fascinating museum and visitor centre, The Almonry is a proud reminder of the past as there's not much left of the rest – just two churches, an arch, a bell tower and a section of the original wall.
Visit to find out about the abbey, the Battle of Evesham and to see the fascinating exhibits including Anglo-Saxon burial treasure and a bible with written notes made at the time of dissolution.
The gardens in front of the Almonry are beautifully kept, making the building especially photogenic.
