Gloucester Mini Guide

What is Gloucester Like?
If you had to choose a quintessentially English city then you’d possibly choose Gloucester. Located in a beautiful valley of the River Severn with an imposing cathedral and many shops and industries with traditional heritages, it’s a great place to stay. Add the proximity of the Cotswolds, the Forest of Dean and the Malvern Hills and you’re in one of the best tourist destinations in the UK.

How Easy is it to get to Gloucester?
It’s very easy to get to Gloucester from Bristol Airport which has many international flights from Europe. There’s a rail link from Bristol to Gloucester if you don’t fancy the drive but car hire at Bristol Airport is very easy to arrange and reasonably priced. An alternative is Birmingham International which has a wider range of flights including two from North America and is only 45 minutes away.

What Should I see or do in Gloucester?
Visiting the cathedral is a must. You may well recognise parts of it from the Harry Potter films! The restored 18th century docks are now a tourist attraction with museums, shops and entertainment facilities. Try to see the Baker’s Jewellers clock in the town centre, said to be one of the most ornate action clocks in the world. Finally, if you tire of the city, take a leisurely drive out into the countryside around Gloucester and enjoy the contrasting sights of the Cotswolds, the Forest of Dean and the rolling Malvern Hills.

Latest Update from Gloucester:

25/02/13 - Many people forget that despite being inland, Gloucester was once an important port. The quays will be the setting from the 24th to the 27th May for the 2013 Tall Ships Festival where you can enjoy all things nautical and hark back to the days of sail.
