Gloucester Rundown

Gloucester is a city in south west England in the county town of Gloucestershire. Although it’s miles from the sea, Gloucester is the furthest inland port in the UK – having been bestowed with port status by Elizabeth I, due to its situation next to the River Severn. ... Read more »

The city has been somewhat left in the doldrums by its affluent and showy neighbour Cheltenham but has no need to attempt to keep up with the Jones’s because Gloucester is a might in its own right. A city of note since Roman times and boasting no less than 500 listed buildings, Gloucester has sturdy historic foundations and recent investment is successfully projecting it into the future.

Gloucester has managed to scrub up nicely. A huge regeneration scheme of the area around the docks has introduced swanky new flats, bars, shops and restaurants of Gloucester Quays. Also situated here is Gloucester Antiques Centre and the Gloucestershire Arts and Crafts Centre, or you can take a trip on the Oliver Cromwell Paddle Steamer which is moored here. Gloucester Cathedral is an awe-inspiring concoction of Gothic and Norman architecture, but many come to visit the various parts of which became Hogwarts School in the Harry Potter films.

WHEN TO GO

· Gloucester and the surrounding Cotswold countryside are particularly inviting during the spring and summer when the gardens are in bloom and there is the best chance of sunny weather. Gloucester experiences mild weather throughout the year with the occasional extremes of temperatures.

· July and August have an average daily temperature of around 22°C, and during the winter months of December and January temperatures tend towards the 5°C mark. Snow is quite a rare occurrence.

· As the old nursery rhyme says ‘Dr Foster went to Gloucester in a shower of rain’. Nothing has changed and it’s highly possible you’ll step in a puddle (maybe not quite up to your middle), but don’t be like Dr Foster and come prepared for the rain.

GETTING THERE

· Gloucester is easily accessible from the M5 Motorway, and has good A road connections to the rest of Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds. National Express coaches are frequent visitors to Gloucester’s large bus station with several leaving for London each day.

· Platform 1/3 at Gloucester Railway station is the longest railway platform in Europe. Aside from this fascinating fact you will also need to know that the city has daily connections to London, Cardiff, Bristol and Birmingham.

· Gloucester does have an airport which operated flights to Jersey. For a full range of domestic and international flights you will need to head for Bristol International Airport which is just a short drive away.
