Explore ancient forests & cities with a Gloucestershire retirement
Gloucestershire is a county that has a splendid city at its heart – boasting excellent shopping centres, museums, activities, restaurants and pubs. It is dominated by the magnificent Gloucester Cathedral, and a short walk from the centre takes you to the historic Gloucester Docks, once the most inland port in Britain.
The Gloucestershire lifestyle
There’s so much to enjoy in and around the county, but if you’re not familiar with the local area, here are just a few of the activities you can enjoy.
The Cotswolds covers a huge area, almost 800 square miles, and runs through four other counties as well as Gloucestershire. One of the highlights of the county, explore the Gloucestershire Cotswolds to find lively market towns, ancient woodlands and meadows, quaint English villages and more.
Within Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds, make sure not to miss out on the various picturesque market towns and villages dotted around. Explore the byways, discover the history, and visit the magnificent Regency town of Cheltenham, famous for its speciality shops, architecture, spa waters and the many festivals based here.
Another region of the county not to miss out on is the Forest of Dean; amongst the unique landscape of forested hillsides and villages you will find castles, museums and cathedrals aplenty, with some top class eateries, markets and more.
The cathedral city of Gloucester has roots stretching all the way back to Roman times- and has continued to be an important English city. With over 2,000 years of history, waterfront bars and restaurants, museums and more, the city of Gloucester makes for a great day out in your retirement.
