Gloucester holiday lettings near the quays and the cathedral
Gloucester offers accommodation for everyone's taste from stone cottages in idyllic surrounding villages to modern studios in factory conversions by the docks.
Finding the best food and drink in Gloucester
The Quays shopping centre is full of the most popular chains with independent brewhouses and restaurants dotted in between. Here, you will find something for everyone. Popular ones are Portivo Lounge, burgers/mains and salads inside an old corn mill, and Coal, a bar and grill with a view of the lifting bridge. Both of these restaurants are small enough to retain their independent feel.
In the main city centre, you can tie in some history with your meal. The inappropriately named 'New Inn' was built in the 15th century and still has the most complete example of a medieval courtyard inn with galleries in Britain. They have a traditional carvery restaurant that serves food every day, or you can have a light afternoon tea here.
Culture in Gloucester: 11th century cathedral and old waterways
The culture is what makes Gloucester, Gloucester! The cathedral gives the city its 'status' and is very impressive, and probably the reason it was used in Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets. Concerts and lectures regularly take place here so check their schedule while planning your stay in a Gloucester lodging.
Gloucester Docks and its lifting bridge provide a lovely dip into the history of the city's waterways. The Waterways Museum gives you more of an insight. The docks are constantly full of colourful river boats all year round, but once a year there is a Tall Ships festival where the docks are full of Victorian ships (aka pirate boats!) with live demonstrations – and this event is perfect for kids too. The docks have been updated and are known as 'the Quays' now but it still has the original factory buildings.
Outside of Gloucester, Littledean Jail is a 200 year old prison serving as an interesting museum. There is also Puzzlewood, a woodland which was featured in Star Wars and also served as the inspiration for The Lord of the Rings.
Gloucester by night
There are so many things to do in the evenings, you'll need to extend your stay in Gloucester. If you want to dance, most clubs offer free entry. You won't struggle to find musicians playing in a bar, or more well known names filling venues in the city. The main ones to check out are the Everyman Theatre, the Roses Theatre and the Guildhall. They also showcase other events including both modern and classic plays, pantomimes and dance shows.
If you want to continue exploring the history of Gloucester, take a candle-lit tour of the museums. The local brewery also hosts evenings where you can taste the beers and see how it is made.
