Pucker up in Tenbury Wells

Once said to have been called �my little town in the orchard� by Queen Victoria, Tenbury Wells is a jewel in the north-west corner of Worcestershire, marking the border with Shropshire and Herefordshire. It's perhaps best known for its annual holly and mistletoe auctions and Mistletoe Festival when there's singing, dancing and the crowning of the mistletoe queen. You'll still find many traditional shops in the town, including a fishmongers, bakery and ironmongers.
