I live in Gloucestershire visit this place all the time I think it's a very nice place to go if you are a tourist and you're thinking of somewhere to see and to take your camera and take three photos

The cathedral and surrounding green are an oasis in a quite scruffy town centre. Best to head to the renovated dock area after seeing the cathedral.

There's something for everyone at Gloucester Cathedral, steeped in history, the resting place of the deposed King Edward II to a more modern backdrop for Hogwarts.

It is a lovely site if you are visiting Gloucester. Only concern is the building work and youths that gather round the building

I was having lunch with some friends and as they had to go off I realised I was parked near the Cathedral with time on my hands. On entering I was told a guided tour was about to commence so I joined the other solo visitor on a fascinating journey around the Cathedral which include Prince Arthur - Henry VIII's... More

Beautiful building in lighter stone than I had previously experienced. Amazing stained glass and friendly and courteous attention from obviously dedicated staff and volunteers.

We only came to see the filming location of the Harry Potter movies but ended up staying for a lot longer and also joined a tour (excellent, lovely tour guide). The Cathedral is absolutely stunning and serene with some of the finest medieval designs. We particularly love the fan vaulted ceiling!

Not usually my thing, but I was amazed at the size of this Cathedral. The stonework and windows are amazing. In the long hall I thought 'Harry Potter' not realising that some of it was filmed here. Worth a visit

I returned to this cathedral thirty years after singing choral evensong as a music student. It still retains its simplicity and beauty.
