Historic Walking Area Landmark
Tour Gloucester Docks to examine the historical shipping industry of southwest England. Situated on the Severn River, the still-functioning Victorian port houses several museums and exhibits for the whole family. Spend the afternoon touring the dock’s machinery and warehouses while learning the importance of the industry to the surrounding area. End the afternoon with a visit to the model boat display, or a tour of the port’s brewery. Take a leisure cruise up the river to see the expansive canal and more of the Gloucester area. Our Gloucester itinerary maker makes visiting Gloucester Docks and other Gloucester attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Stayed in centre of Gloucester and it was just 10 minutes walk to the docks. Nice area to browse around, small shopping arcade, cafes, Wetherspoons.  more »

  • Brilliant place for a quiet walk. Absolutely beautiful in a very down to earth manner. Worth spending some time and enjoying the surroundings
  • My favourite part of Gloucester. A really good example of gentrification. A great place to spend the day or the evening. Good selection of different restaurants. The legroom at the cinema is great!
  • Awesome dock location. You have museums, rides with the boat on the canal... nice to walk around. Prefect for bringing kids.
  • Just loved to walk around and see how nice and plenty of life an old industrial area is becoming. Would just love to live here!
  • Really busy when there are events on but peaceful at other times. Visiting boats change and can see those being repaired in the dry dock.
