AboutThe county of Gloucestershire reaches from the north suburbs of Bristol and the Severn Vale to the far side of the Cotswold Hills, encompassing the Forest of Dean, Cheltenham and Gloucester. A visit to Gloucestershire usually includes a trip to the picturesque villages located in the Cotswolds, but there’s more to see and do too.
Visit Gloucester, a vibrant, lively city with a rich historic past. The cathedral weaves a special charm and magic that proved irresistible as one of the settings for the films 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' and 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets'.
The spa town of Cheltenham is renowned for its Regency architecture, stylish shopping, colourful parks, floral displays, festivals and of course, the Cheltenham Races!
Tewkesbury holds the unique position of being on the edge of the Cotswolds but also being part of the Severn Vale, with the river Severn meeting the river Avon at the town. Tewkesbury has one of the best medieval streetscapes in the country.
If you enjoy the great outdoors then a visit to the Forest of Dean is a must. England's first national forest park and largest oak woodland is a great place to enjoy some wonderful outdoor activities.
