About Gloucester

The city of Gloucester has an illustrious history that dates right back to Roman times, and thanks to the many historic treasures that remain within the city, it has maintained its status as an attractive tourist destination. Sitting on the banks of the River Severn, this unique port city offers up plenty of scenic cruises and boating opportunities in the heart of its historic Victorian Docks. Few visitors would want to miss the city’s magnificent Norman cathedral or a visit to The Tailor of Gloucester Museum, one of original settings for one of Beatrix Potter’s beloved stories.
