Upton-Upon- Severn, Worcestershire

Upton-Upon-Severn used to be quite a busy port and it’s still the only river crossing around for miles; nowadays the trade boats have been replaced by pleasure craft and to climb aboard a barge on the marina and head off down the river is one sure way to guarantee a relaxing time.
Back in town it’s usually fairly quiet, a peaceful air, though it does get busy during the holidays. You’ll notice the black and white 17th century buildings, the varied independent shops and you can’t miss The Pepperpot, a medieval church tower with an 18th century cupola instead of a spire. Put paid to any rumbling tummies with a visit to The White Lion,  or back down on the riverside go to the Swan Hotel or the Stables Tea Rooms.
