Because of the rich history of Gloucester and the many
industries that have their history within the town, there are hosts
of small and large museums detailing days gone by which many locals
and tourists alike enjoy. Chief among these for interest and
collections are the Folk Museum and the Waterways Museum.
If it's local heritage you seek, then look no further. Whether
you hail from Gloucester or you're simply visiting the area, no
visit to our fair city is complete without a visit to The
Guildhall, Berkeley Castle and Gloucester Cathedral which are three
of our finest ancient buildings. There are of course scores of
others if these three simply whet the appetite.
If the heritage and the history aren't for you, then there's
plenty in Gloucester to keep you going. How about some of the best
retail therapy in the country? Gloucester has some of the finest
shops, boutiques and crafting in the country and whilst you're here
please take the time to discover and enjoy The Mall, Kings Walk,
The Gloucester Quays, the Beechwood Shopping arcade, The Regent
Arcade and The Merry Walks where you're sure to find clothes, fancy
good and accessories to suit just about every taste.
However, if shopping and history are definitely not up your
alley and it's more modern thrills you're looking for then
Gloucester does not disappoint. Here you'll find a Go-Karting
track, Cineworld, and of course Tenpin Bowling for the young and
