Discover a busy city that's steeped in history

As a Roman-founded city featuring a Gothic cathedral, it's no surprise that Gloucester has plenty of heritage to admire. You'll see half-timbered houses and buildings from the medieval and Tudor periods, and it's just a short walk from the city centre to the 200-year-old Gloucester Docks and its 15 Victorian warehouses.

But despite its deep history, it's still a thriving, modern centre, full of restaurants, shops, museums and art galleries. You can catch drama, music or films at the Guild Hall, and there are festivals and events all through the year – such as the annual Rhythm and Blues Festival, or the weekend-long Cajun and Zydeco Festival.

Retire to an area that's brimming with nature

Beyond the historical sights of the city, Gloucester's especially famous for the rolling hills and green meadows of the Cotswolds, a place that's been officially designated as an Area of Outstanding Beauty. It's a massive expanse that runs from just south of Stratford-upon-Avon down to Bath, and there's lots of intriguing wildlife and exceptional views to take in – in between the many interesting small towns and villages dotted around the area.

Explore the Secret Garden at the 15th Century Sudeley Castle, take a tour of the 700-acre estate at Newark Park, or visit one of the 80 nature reserves spread across Gloucestershire – such as Crickley Hill Country Park near Cheltenham, where you can soak up far-reaching views of the Severn Vale and the distant Black Mountains in Wales.

Testimonial image

As if moving into my beautiful new apartment wasn’t enough, everything that led up to the move was handled by McCarthy & Stone. I couldn’t believe how easy it all turned out to be; I was left with just two boxes to unpack which suited me and Meira just fine.
