The Central England/Cotswolds region
Situated in one of most beautiful counties in the country, Gloucester has a great deal to offer both the rural hiker and most cosmopolitan city dweller. It encompasses the enviable position of being close to several areas of natural beauty as well as within an easy train journey of Bath Spa, Cheltenham and Worcester.
If you walk a little further into the City you will find other delights such as St James City Farm (http://www.stjamescityfarm.co.uk/), the lovely Beatrix Potter Museum The Tailor of Gloucester (http://www.tailor-of-gloucester.org.uk/) and of course the astounding and superb Gloucester Cathedral - resting place of Edward II and backdrop to both Doctor Who and Harry Potter. Did you als know that Gloucestershire is what J.R.R Tolkien based 'The Shire' on in the Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings?
There are festivals and events throughout the year, from wonderful summer food fairs and the Tall Ships Festival (which you can almost feel like an extra from Pirates of the Caribbean) to the sumptuous Victorian Market which is full of Victorian delights and actors – watch out for Fagin and his gang!
