Gloucester quays are a lovely set of old buildings repurposed as cafes, coffee shops, shops, etc. There is a lot of open space and reasonable parking. With events and activities all year round, a good place to visit. Down sides, can get very crowded.

This development is quite something. A vast array of cafes and restaurants alongside some fairly upmarket shopping outlets. The main area appears to be accessible to all and that includes the eateries. Whatever your taste in food, It seems to have been catered for. The...More

The dock area has been reclaimed with the old brick mills upgraded. When we visited there was not a lot of activity happening. There was a pub with people sitting outside but little else of interest. Worth a visit, from a historical point of view,...More

I guess ten years ago this area would have looked very different. However it has been redeveloped sympathetically, retaining the character of industrial Gloucester. A lovely mix of shops (Outlet village) , Waterways Museum, cafes and bars. Well worth visiting.
