The River Severn passes through Gloucester. The city's old docks were once a bustling center of global and local commerce. Today, the old warehouses are monuments to the early days of industry. Filled with shops, restaurants, and museums, they are well worth a visit.
The Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museum
Here you'll find a large collection of War memorabilia and tells the story of what it would have been like in the regiment over the last three hundred years.
There are interactive displays, contemporary film records, medal collection and a highly decorative collection of uniforms, weapons and souvenirs from all over the globe.

Gloucester: Jewel of the Cotswolds
Gloucester was once a bustling port, where goods travelled to and from both the waterways and foreign destinations. More recently, larger ports such as Bristol, Cardiff, Swansea, and Liverpool have taken over the shipping business. So Gloucester has become something of a backwater. And it's not a big tourist destination, either.
But it's well worth seeing. The National Waterways Museum teaches all about Britain's waterways, the boats that ply them, and the people who ride them.
"A Cathedral City"
Gloucester's Cathedral is one of Britain's grandest, even though it receives far fewer visitors than some of the others. This is another must-see for any visitor.
