Situated 8 miles from Stratford-upon-Avon lies the historic market town of Alcester. Founded by the Romans in AD47 as a walled fort, Alcester has continued through the ages as a centre for local trade. The strong heritage of the town is displayed through two impressive stately homes lying just to the outskirts, Coughton Court and Ragley Hall, both of which act as beautiful attractions to both locals and visitors alike. Home to Alcester Town F.C., Alcester & Ragley Park Cricket Club and Alcester Golf Club, the town has several sporting clubs to be enjoyed by any local resident.
