Upton upon Severn

your historic riverside town

Upton upon Severn is a small town of great character and charm that sits on the River Severn, in South Worcestershire.

Upton has a range of buildings and historic artefacts, such as the ‘Pepperpot’ and the Tudor House Museum – the most interesting standing structures.

The town also maintains a connection to the modern marina situated on the east bank of the River Severn, providing great facilities for both members and visitors.

There is a variety of small, independently-owned shops and businesses, cafes and restaurants, perfect for browsing, a leisurely cup of tea and a cake, or a pint by the river.

Upton is also well known for its flooding. Recently, successful flood defences have been put in place, keeping the Upton streets dry!

Upton in Bloom



Upton in Bloom has been awarded a “Gold” in the Heart of England Campaign each year since the committee was formed in 2003. It has frequently been the category winner and in 2008 was the overall winner. This year it has been nominated for Britain in Bloom for the third time. It is hoping to improve on the “Silver Gilt” it was awarded in 2007 even after floods had devastated displays between the regional and national judging days. The floral displays, including boats full of flowers, provide a stunning welcome to the town.
