The 'Edge' refers to the Cotswold edge, under which Wotton-under-Edge nestles, overlooking the Severn Vale. An interesting Heritage Centre tells some of the history of the town. This is an excellent centre for walking and is on the Cotswold Way . Its main street has been called a 'department store within a street'. The refurbished Wotton Electric Picture House, an all digital cinema, offering an enhanced 3D film experience, attracts both mainstream and contemporary films. There is a vibrant community arts centre, a highly repsected auction room and the town has an outdoor swimming pool with retractable cover, open in the summer. On Sunday afternoons - April to October - many visitors enjoy the excellent "Town Hall Teas" provided in the Town Hall by local charities and groups.
There is a highly respected Auction Room that has an antiques sale at the end of every month, including ceramics, paintings, jewellery and furniture. The Farmers’ market is the 1st Saturday of the month.
At Wotton-under-Edge, there really is something for everyone!
