Gloucester Docks

We are close to the former dock estate which has become a popular free destination where visitors can enjoy interesting views. There are a range of modern facilities while wandering around a remarkably complete example of a Victorian port.

Views include many fine warehouses and other dock-related buildings that have been found new uses. Where ships once discharged their cargoes, there is now an ever-changing miscellany of visiting narrow boats, smart motor cruisers and the                                                 occasional yacht or tall ship.

Gloucester Farmers Market

Gloucester City Council's Farmers Market is located in the Gate Streets every Friday 9am-3pm.

It is generally accepted by most Farmers' Markets that stall holders must have grown, bred, caught, pickled, brewed or baked the goods themselves.

The selection of produce available at a Farmers' Market will clearly vary with location and season. However customers are likely to be able to find a delicious seasonal selection of fruit and vegetables, fresh and processed meats, eggs, bread                                                 and cakes, preserves, fruit juices and dairy produce.
