Situated between the Cotswolds and the Malvern Hills, Tewkesbury is named after the medieval riverside town on the Severn and the Avon. Tourism is a thriving industry in Tewkesbury, thanks to its narrow alleyways, black and white timber framed buildings and 12th Century Abbey. Other Cotswolds destinations include the pretty town of Winchcombe and the village of Toddington. To the south are suburbs of Cheltenham and Gloucester, such as Churchdown and Prestbury, and many residents will commute to those centres for work.
This largely white constituency has a lot of home owners and fewer social homes than average, according to the 2011 Census. It enjoys low unemployment with many residents working in retail, manufacturing, construction and public sector jobs.
Tewkesbury and its predecessor have returned Conservative MPs for decades. Laurence Robertson held the seat for the Conservatives in 2010 with a majority of 5,586 votes. The Lib Dems came second.
