The ancient city of Gloucester is well worth exploring with its fine Cathedral and historical docks. Of course, the history of Gloucester goes back to before the Romans came in AD49, pottery dating as old as 6,000 years has been discovered in the area. The tomb of King Edward II is in the Cathedral , from 1327, after he was murdered at Berkeley Castle.


Today Gloucester shares its history with the modern city, currently undergoing a multi-million pound facelift near to the docks.
