The City of Gloucester is located on the eastern bank of the river Severn and is not only the perfect base to explore the Cotswolds, but is also within easy reach of the Forest of Dean and the Malvern Hills.

Gloucester history can be traced back to Roman times with the discovery of many artifacts including coins and ruins. Architecturial examples spanning many historical periods can still be seen including Gloucester Cathedral, which foundations date back to 681.

Gloucester was once a very busy and vibrant port. Items such as Corn from Ireland, Timber from North America and Wines & Spirits from Europe were once landed in the many dockland warehouses and wharfs which still stand. Today these buildings have been converted into many restaurants and bars and aslo house The National Waterways Museum.

Gloucester has a lively town centre, combining some original buildings with many modern restaurants, bistros and exclusive shops.

The city's main theatre and cultural venue is the Guildhall, which hosts live music, dance sessions, a cinema, bar, café, art gallery and many other events.
