About Gloucester

In recent years, the city of Gloucester has become particularly well known because Gloucester Cathedral was one of the locations where the Harry Potter movies were filmed. Whether you are a movie fan or not, this cathedral in the centre of the city is a stunning place to visit thanks to its moody cloisters, gorgeous windows, and amazing acoustics. You are sure to appreciate the latter if you decide to attend one of the weekly choral services and classic performances that occur in the cathedral. Gloucester is also home to the children's writer Beatrix Potter. The Beatrix Potter museum is filled with figurines and drawings from Potter's works. If you would like to know more about the traditions and rural ways of life of the county of Gloucestershire as a whole, the Gloucester Folk Museum in Gloucester is well worth a visit as it is both fascinating and informative. The city of Gloucester is a great place for shopping, with plenty of places to buy clothes, souvenirs, and other items, as well as lots of welcoming cafes to relax in.
