“A little walk from the town centre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Well signposted, but not so easy finding the shops once down at the docks. It was a friday, but thought more people would have been around. More eating outside than shopping. No too impressed with the shopping area.

“Rapidly being restored”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Many of the old warehouses have been restored and converted to apartments which are close to the city centre. Several old ships in evidence, including an historic dredger. Plenty of eating places and near to canal trips and museum

“Holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Visited Historic docks on a recent road trip around the south of England, the docks are an interesting area to visit with plenty for all, history, shopping, eating and just plain relaxing. We spent a good three to four hours just wandering around, enjoyed several eating/dinks stops within the area.

“gloucester”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

good day to day went to Gloucester for first time. Interesting place has plenty for the traveller and the sightseer , cathedral is a must and also the quayside, beside the docks , mini brewery and museum and boat trips, for the ladies a designer mall, all these you must see , and go to Tucci for that coffee with the Italian touch , and ladies do not go there if you are keeping an eye on you figure there are things to tempt you. Finally eating is not a problem food for all tastes and diets.
