Gloucester (glos-ter) began life as a settlement for retired Roman soldiers but really came into its own in medieval times, when the pious public brought wealth and prosperity to what was then a pilgrimage city. The faithful flocked to see the grave of Edward 11 and soon financed the building of what remains one of England’s most beautiful cathedrals.
On more recent years, Gloucester bore the brunt of hard times and the city fell into serious decline. The centre remains a rather dowdy, workaday place, but scratch the surface and you’ll find a glimmer of medieval character.
Useless fact: John Stafford Smith, who composed America’s national anthem, The Star Spangled Banner, was born in Gloucester in 1750.

“Gloucester’s accommodation options are pretty grim. You’d be far better off staying in Cheltenham (10 minutes by Train) instead.”
