The Market Town of Tenbury Wells

Tenbury Wells is a small ancient market town situated in the very north west of Worcestershire on the A456, close to the borders of Herefordshire and Shropshire.

It is separated from south Shropshire by the fast flowing River Teme, which begins its journey in mid Wales.

Tenbury is 35 miles south west of England’s second major city, Birmingham, and 25 miles from the border between England and Wales. The town nestles peacefully in the beautiful Teme Valley that is under-explored.

The area is still largely unspoilt farming country and perfect for walking in the delightful countryside of the Teme Valley.

Tenbury had the ‘Wells’ added to its name in the mid 19th century to help promote the Mineral Water Wells that had been found in the town from 1840 onwards. The mineral waters brought about the building in 1862 of the now restored Tenbury Spa, or Pump Rooms as it is generally known.

The town is a good base for discovering other areas of the Teme Valley and beyond. It is close to some excellent walks and has variety of interesting shops. Tenbury lies in an area known for growing hops and cider apples. “The Town in the Orchard”.

Queen Victoria referred to Tenbury as ”my little town in the orchard” The affection could not have been more appropriate

Welcome to Tenbury Wells




I moved from Rochford to Kidderminster over 40 years ago, attracted by the natural features and appeal of the beautiful Teme Valley.

Living within a few of miles of Tenbury Wells, “The Town in the Orchard”, provides major benefits for all residents and local people. The Town contains a full range of independent shops, cafes/restaurants and public houses. The residents and visitors have easy access to a library, a swimming pool/sports centre, post office, playing fields, plus excellent junior and senior schools.

The unique majestic Regal provides all types of live shows and films throughout the entire year.

However, the most important element of Tenbury Wells is the people who are friendly, helpful, enthusiastic, interesting, amusing characters, giving Tenbury Wells a very special atmosphere and sense of community.

Mayor, Cllr. Robert Perrin
