    Beautiful cathedral with so much history. Superb craftsmanship on show throughout the building. We paid to have a guide with one of the volunteers Margaret, £5.50 each but was excellent value for all the interesting points raised by Margaret. Stained glass windows are superb. Obviously a building of great religious and historical importance.

    Small but very impressive museum better than some larger and better funded collections. All the exhibits are associated with aviation in Gloucestershire and especially the Gloster aircraft company. Pride of place must go to the Game cock biplane fighter built from scratch by museum volunteers and appropriately displayed to show its construction. A visit should be combined with a trip to the historic and underrated city of Gloucester

    We had no idea Gloucester had docks! This seems to have been redeveloped in the last 20 years. There is lots to see and plenty of places to eat.

    Great range of outlet shops across home, beauty, fashion...
    The centre is modern and fresh, parking is easy, accessibility is good and there's something for everyone.
    Ranges from M&S to Le Creuset, and The Works to Levi's.
    Parking charges are reasonable.
    Good range of restaurants and bars, and a nice cinema.

    We visited the stadium for a friends family members wake, the whole experience was so lovely and really was organised and set out well. We loved the takeaway vans outside and also the choice to have a sit down meal inside if wanted. The staff were ever so polite and helpful. An emotional day which was complimented by the hospitality.

    I was hugely impressed with this canal.It is is one of the biggest canals I have ever seen and when it was built 200 years ago it was the biggest in the world. The restorative work that has been done in the Gloucester Docks has restored this area to a very fine state.

    The museum is well signposted and an easy walk from the town centre and car park. It was not a lot of money to get in - it only cost us £12.50 as a family of 4. Although not a huge place, the museum is very informative and extremely interesting. The staff were exceptionally friendly and one gentleman, Len, walked around the museum with us and told us all the backstories to the items - things that we may not have noticed if he wasn't there! It was great talking to and learning from him, and we would all really recommend this place!

    Good to see and hear how people on the canals worked years ago. Lots of exhibits and things to see. Right by the docks.

    This is super and worth a visit. The cafe was very good. Recommend the coffee, chicken club sandwich and dark choc brownies, great value and freshly made. Great staff. The site is run by Gloucester council and the cafe is Glos Wildlife trust. Free parking and toilets.
    BUT the signage is terrible. We wanted to climb to the beacon but there were no signs to direct people or any indication of how far to the top. The map was rubbish, we got lost as there were no directions to the main paths or where to go. It turned out it is a long way to the beacon, but no way of knowing. You can access the hill from the quarry side nr Whaddon as well which has a small car park.

    A very relaxing and informative visit. Some real treasures in sculptures and pictures - and an artist in residence you could talk to and watch! The garden was full of sculptures and the house had a wide variety of art objects and paintings - all about nature. Lovely café with snack lunch items.
    All this made for such a nice day - we will be back

    A great place in the centre of Gloucester and ideal for young children to get them used to being near animals. Staff very friendly. Also close by is a lovely playground for little children.

    A really interesting small museum with some unique treasures inside. The museum is free (donations welcomed) and has a small cafe.

    Great fun. We went on Halloween weekend with our three year old. Lots of fun things to do to keep us all entertained for more than a few hours. Good food but not enough tables under the tent for a rainy day. Would definitely return.
