Tewkesbury is a constituency represented in the House of Commons by Laurence Robertson. The fourth periodic review of Westminster constituencies in 1997 saw the seat's recreation from the similar, but slightly larger county division, Tewkesbury and Cirencester.
As its name suggests, the main town in the constituency is Tewkesbury, but other areas include Twyning, Ashchurch, Bishop's Cleeve, Winchcombe, Prestbury, Brockworth, Churchdown, Innsworth and Longlevens. The town is home to a former Benedictine monastery and the second largest parish church in the country – Tewkesbury Abbey. Tewkesbury also claims Gloucestershire's oldest public house, the Black Bear, dating from 1308, as well as many notable Tudor buildings.
