Gloucester

This city on the River Severn was once an important inland port. Gloucester’s history goes back to Roman times when the city was a major provincial centre and its importance increased in the Norman period when William the Conqueror met here frequently but in the Middle Ages, the port began to decline as trade picked up in Bristol.

Nowadays Gloucester’s waterways are popular with leisure craft travelling Britain’s canal system and its historic docks have been revived with pubs, shops, cafés and the Gloucester Waterways Museum.
