Nestled within the south west of England, Gloucestershire boasts some truly stunning landscapes, taking in part of The Cotswolds, the entire Forest of Dean and part of the valley of the River Severn. The main city of the county is Gloucester and a trip here wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the magnificent 11th century Cathedral, resting place of King Edward II whilst the Gloucester Docks are soaked in history and boast various great bars, restaurants and shops. The Regency Spa town of Cheltenham is another famous place in Gloucestershire, home to the famous racecourse and the annual Cheltenham Festival, the town is found within an area of outstanding natural beauty on the edge of The Cotswolds. Away from the towns and cities, Gloucestershire has so much to offer visitors, including the amazing Royal Forest of Dean.
Visit the amazing Puzzlewood, the place that inspired Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. A 14 acre ancient woodland within the Forest of Dean, Puzzlewood is a maze of pathways winding through gulleys of mossy rocks, twisted roots and bridges and never fails to amaze and surprise. Another sight well worth seeing is Clearwell Caves, a natural cave system once used for mining iron ore and now a mining museum.
Gloucestershire is a great place for afternoon tea, offering a wealth of superb choices.
