The first landmark to be seen as you enter this small, former market town, is the distinctive copper covered cupola that has earned the nickname, "Pepper Pot". This area of Worcestershire is steeped in history. Across the River Severn is the battlefield where ferocious fighting took place during the Civil War.


The town now during the summer months hosts various festivals. One of the most popular being the Upton Jazz Festival. From all around the world for one weekend Upton is alive to the sound of this great music.
