About the location


Cheltenham 11 miles.

In the historic waterfront city of Gloucester you will find Roman foundations, Victorian Docklands and a magnificent Norman Cathedral (whose cloisters were used as a location in the Harry Potter films) rubbing shoulders with a bustling city centre boasting an incredible range of shops, markets, restaurants, pubs and visitor attractions. Gloucester is an ideal base for touring the Cotswolds and Forest of Dean, bursting with peaceful country walks and quaint villages, not to mention the regency town of Cheltenham, with its historic Georgian architecture and famous Gold Cup horse racing.
