Gloucester, the capital of Gloucestershire is cradled by the picturesque Cotswold Hills. The city has a vibrant, lively atmosphere that combines a rich historic past with all the excitement and attractions of a city just full of life, begging to be explored. Here you will find Roman foundations, Victorian Docklands and the magnificent Norman Cathedral rubbing shoulders with a bustling city centre with a range of shops, restaurants, wine bars, pubs, entertainment and unique visitor attractions. The Cathedral weaves a special charm and magic that proved irresistible as one of the settings for the movie ' Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' and 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets'. There is also a large park which hosts events throughout the year and two fascinating museums.

 

Gloucester hosts several exciting events, such as the Tall Ships festival, Gloucester Blues Festival and the new Gloucester Quays Food Festival, and has a sporting reputation with Kingsholm Rugby Ground

There is a large variety of shops - from High street favourites, supermarkets, a Designer Outlet at Gloucester Quays and a number of speciality shops in the Westgate Quarter.

 

Gloucester is well served by a train station on a main line and many bus services to other towns in the area.
