Worth a visit. Need at least an hour to enjoy the beautiful 1000 year old Cathedral. The stained-glass is great. We were lucky to be part of the prayers as the choir was brilliant and it is one of the best in the country.

We only had half an hour to spend in this beautiful building but what we saw, we were blown away by. The stained-glass is superb and architecture awesome. We had a brief chat with a guide about historical facts etc. he was very knowledgeable and we wished we'd had more time to spend there. Definitely returning in near future.

Park at the bottom of Westgate Street and it's just a 400 metre stroll, past St.Nicholas Church on your left and the Folk Museum on your right. Take a left, and there it is, in all it's considerable majesty. Just take a moment to drink in the size, weight, height and colour of a building over 1000 years old. Absolutely... More

We drove here to see the inside of the cathedral for the Harry Potter sets and was blown away with its beauty. It was free, donations only and it was spectacular

OK it's a cathedral some may think oh no boring. Far from it. It is steeped in history and the architecture is 1st class. Add to the mix Harry Potter was partially filmed here. And lots of the grounds were used in the movies. Also add Dr Who. And then if you want more excitement we have Gloucester docks. But... More
