I visited Gloucester yesterday, a short-ish reconnaissance preparing for proper visits at a later stage - but my mind has already blown by how good Gloucester Docks is! The docks are where the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal begins offering a safer and alternative route to the Severn. There is so much to see including a lightship which i always enjoy.
I will definitely be returning here - i suspect many times! I also stopped off at Cheltenham Spa on the way - i have been here once before but it was a long time ago when i was just out of uni. Again i shall return one day soon.
You can see my Gloucester Docks photos here. Photos from Cheltenham Spa & Gloucester railway stations are here.
