In Gloucester - What To Do When You Visit Gloucester by Simon
|The town of Gloucester has
been well established for many centuries and is renowned throughout the
world for the rhythm and blues musical festival, which takes place each
year. Also along with this, there are plenty of other Gloucester attractions
that will keep one entertained on a visit to this town.
Located close to the Welsh
border it provides not only the ideal base for exploring what the county
of Gloucestershire has to offer. But also provides you with the perfect
base to travel in to Wales and see what this part of Great Britain has
to offer as well. However, below we look at some of the attractions that
may interest you and which are located close to or in Gloucester itself.
- This is a place where people have come to worship for more
than 1,300 years now. The architecture of the building will leave you stunned
and its cloisters are considered to be by many one of the architectural
gems of England. In recent years, this building has been used as the set
when the Harry Potter films have been made.
2. Gloucester Park -
This area of green land was the first park to be established in the town
and is very close to its center. This area is extremely popular not just
with visitors but those who reside in Gloucester as well. There is plenty
of space to walk, have a picnic and for the kid's to play in. This park
comes alive during the summer as many festivals are held within it.
|3. Dick Whittington Family
Leisure Park - Located a short distance away from Gloucester here you
will find an array of activities (both indoors and out). However, this
park is only suitable for children aged between 2 and 10. But as well as
all the activities that the park has to offer there are animals, which
they can spend time with. Plus if you want them to burn off even more energy
then grab a picnic and take a walk along the hilltops that surround it.
4. The Soldiers of Gloucester
Museum - As you walk towards the entrance of this museum you will be
greeted by two sphinxes, which stand guard over it. These are a battle
honour which was won by the Gloucestershire Regiment and which they proudly
like to display. Once inside you will learn everything about the Royal
Gloucestershire Hussars illustrious and very distinguished history. It
allows you to look at the lives of the soldiers of this regiment both during
and during peacetime.

attractions that we have mentioned above a quick search online and you
will find plenty of others that may interest you. You may well find that
you need to spend several days in this city to enjoy all that it and the
surrounding area have to offer.
