Why Gloucestershire?

Gloucestershire houses the city of Gloucester, towns of Cheltenham, Cirencester, Stroud and Tewkesbury. With all of these to explore, you definitely wont be short of something to do in Gloucestershire. Gloucestershire is home to the Cotswolds which is the largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England and Wales. It is a quintessentially British county that is home to rolling hills, green fields and picturesque towns and villages.

Gloucestershire not only boasts first rate scenery with their miles of unspoilt countryside, full of wildlife and stunning views, enabling brilliant walking and cycling adventures but it also hosts fantastic heritage and family attractions and activities for all to enjoy.


Walking

Whether you would rather a lovely country stroll or a challenging countryside walk, Gloucestershire has it! Take advantage of the picturesque landscape on either a group walk or discover the countryside on your own by foot and make your own path through Gloucestershire.

Some of the most beautiful places to walk in the UK are in the Cotswolds. Some of the top places to walk include the Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons which is not just a stunning area but an important archaeological landscape with prehistoric field systems and burial mounds. May Hill is another beautiful place to walk and its summit is made up of grasslands, brackland and boggy pools and walkers can admire some fantastic views of Herefordshire.


Cycling

However if you would rather be on two wheels than on foot, cycling is another great way to explore Gloucestershire and see all around. There are many dedicated on road and off road cycle routes, dependent on your preference, ensuring there is something for all, especially for those who love to be outside.

Sustrans' Route 45 travels 270 miles from Chester to Salisbury and takes cyclists via Gloucester, Stroud, Cirencester and Swindon. Cycle-Route has information on tens and tens of routes, ranging from short to long distance rides including a route through the Severn Valley And Forest Of Dean.


Heritage

Gloucestershire entertains Saxon churches to Neolithic burial mounds and so much more in-between! Rich in heritage, you can visit many museums from cultural to artistic to scientific and to historic. Must visits include Dyrham Park which has an outstanding collection of Dutch art and Ceramics and Snowshill Manor which is an extraordinary manor house packed full of interesting items from Samurai armour to exquiste clocks and musical instruments.

However, if you prefer to be by the water, the Gloucestershire Docks are extremely well known, as is their volunteer-ran heritage railway, which runs along the Gloucestershire and Worcestershire border.


Family

If you are visiting Gloucestershire with your family and have youngsters to keep amused, do not worry! Gloucestershire holds Go Karting for all the family or maybe you would rather head to the Ski and Snowboard Centre or even go horse riding at the various riding schools throughout Gloucestershire.

There are so many attractions and activities for the family, no matter what the ages are or the interests. To find out more please visit our Things To Do section.
