History fanatics 'should head to Gloucester'
Guests staying at hotels in the Cotswolds should find their way to Gloucester for a real taste of history, a local expert has said.
A spokesman for Marketing Gloucester highlighted that visitors are never short of activities when they head to the region, especially those with an interest in exploring the past.
"The city boasts a Victorian dockside that's the most inland port in Britain, plus a wealth of historic buildings, museums and attractions, shops, cafes, bars and restaurants," he explained.
Throughout the year, there is also thriving entertainment programme with various events and festivals to keep people of all ages occupied, the expert added.
One of the most impressive sites in Gloucester is its cathedral, which boasts a number of architectural styles from the Norman era through to more modern times.
Entry to Gloucester Cathedral is free, although a donation is recommended to help with the upkeep of the building.
