Travelling to Gloucester by road

Gloucester enjoys a fairly easy-to-access location just off the M5 motorway, roughly equidistant between Birmingham and Bristol.

If your accommodation is in the centre of Gloucester, leave the motorway at junction 11A and follow signs towards the town. For other locations, it’s worth having a look at an online travel planning tool such as the AA Route Planner to check the best possible route.

Parking in Gloucester can sometimes be a challenge so it’s worth clarifying what arrangements are available at your accommodation before you set off.

Getting the train to Gloucester

Regular trains to Gloucester Train Station come from Cardiff and from Birmingham New Street. Journeys can be impacted by engineering works, particularly at the weekend so make sure you check for the latest news on National Rail when you’re planning your journey.

Travelling to Gloucester by air

Gloucester does not have an airport with passenger flights but it’s a relatively short drive from both Birmingham and Bristol airport. It’s also possible to travel from Birmingham Airport to Gloucester by train with a change at Birmingham New Street station.
