Why Live in Alcester?

Alcester is an ancient Roman town situated in south-west Warwickshire, close to the Worcestershire border. It was founded by the Romans. There are many archaeological sites of interest in the town and surrounding area. It is just north of the Fosse Way, an important thoroughfare in Roman Britain.

Today the town features architecture from the Medieval, Tudor, Georgian, Victorian and 20th century. The oldest house is thought to be The Old Malthouse which probably dates from about 1500. 

The clock on St Nicholas' church is set at a strange angle to be more visible from the High Street.

Alcester is also known for two nearby stately homes. To the north is Coughton Court, a magnificent Palladian House surrounded by 400 acres of grounds and to the south-west is Ragley Hall, the home of the Marquis of Hertford. 

Alcester is also a significant town on the 100-mile-long Heart of England Way long-distance walking route. 

Alcester is a great Town for enjoying Real Ale with 30+ handpumps in the Town Centre and 2 pubs in CAMRA's 2017 Good Beer Guide!
