Discover Gloucester

The Great Outdoors

The Alney Island Nature Reserve is a mere five minutes from the city center and located on the banks of the River Severn. The park has great historical significance, as it was once the most convenient place to cross the river from England to Wales. Those who enjoy a bit of culture alongside an outdoor activity will love seeing the Victorian bridges. A few long-distance trails wander through this 80-hectare park. Wildlife watching is a popular pastime here, with the chance to see several species of waterfowl and raptors.

Gloucester Park is a well-maintained outdoor area in the heart of the city. It offers a welcome and refreshing change from the urban landscape with its rolling lawns. The park welcomes day-use visitors and features a skate park, ping pong tables, a playground, a cafe, and more. Take an interesting walk through the park, which is dotted with statues and monuments commemorating prominent residents and local historical events.

Saintbridge Balancing Pond & Allotments is a must-see for families with children. It hosts an abundance of wildlife, including ducks and swans who make the water their home. The park offers scenic walks along smooth footpaths as well as sports fields. One of the ponds also provides an overflow solution in times of heavy rain.

West End Farm Campsite is set next to the beautiful River Severn on the outskirts of Gloucester.

Another great campground for those renting a camper in Gloucester is the Severn Valley Touring Caravan and Camping Site, also set on a scenic family-run farm. This park requires anyone under 18 to be accompanied by a legal guardian. This campground values a quiet and restful atmosphere and therefore doesn't allow large groups or noisy events. They offer both hardstanding sites and grass sites with electricity.

Exploring the City

The Gloucester Museum is a worthwhile visit for those who love a healthy dose of culture and history. You'll learn all about Gloucester's origins as a Roman fortress in the first century AD and see artifacts surviving from that era. The museum prides itself on its interactive displays that capture the imagination of all age groups. Some of the exhibits include a Roman kitchen playhouse and remains of the original Roman wall. Group tours and educational talks are also available. After touring the museum, head to the cafe for a spot of English tea.

The Hillfield Gardens​​ are also a popular destination. Visitors can amble around the impressive three acres of open space and enjoy the fresh air. The original garden was created in 1867 and has been beautifully maintained. This former private garden now hosts several rare species of trees and flowers, as well as historic monuments. This is a prime location for parents to enjoy a leisurely stroll and children to play after a day of exploring the city.

No visit to Gloucester is complete without wandering through Gloucester Cathedral. Construction of this iconic church began in the 11th century, but a place of worship has occupied this site in some form or fashion since 678 AD. Harry Potter fans will instantly recognize the cathedral as a set from the world-famous film franchise. Other highlights include The Chapter House and the tomb of Edward II.

Being a major city, Gloucester offers visitors easy access to all supplies and amenities. When it comes to dining, typical takeaway options are readily available alongside specialty foods, like vegan cuisine, Greek, Portuguese, and classic British fare.
