Visit the historic city of Gloucester on a Canal Boat Holiday exploring the Gloucester And Sharpness Canal.

The 16 mile waterway starts at the Historic Gloucester Docks and ends in the commercial port of Sharpness and has immense swing bridges and ornate bridge keepers houses as features unique to this canal.

The once derelict port of Gloucester Docks is now a vibrant retail, leisure and residential area.

At times you can view the Tall Ships moored in the docks and the area will look familiar as the Onedin Line was filmed there.

Visit the collection of restored Victorian warehouses containing shops, museums, restaurants and cafe bars.

Set in Gloucesters Historic docks the National Waterways Museum tells the story and history behind 200 years of the inland waterways.

Currently Canal Boat Holiday visitors will be able to join in the Easter fun and activities.

An assortment of cuddly, creepy and fluffy animals, courtesy of Angell Pets, will be making an appearance at the Museum.

Go along and discover more about a wide assortment of creatures and learn about how they should be cared for and what they like to eat.

Visit the Cathedral which was built in 1100 as a Norman abbey church is in the centre of Gloucester and boasts an impressive nave and Norman pillars.

The vaulted cloisters are now world famous because it was where some scenes of the Harry Potter films were filmed.

The childrens novel The Taylor of Gloucester by Beatrix Potter was published in 1903 and tells the story of a group of mice helping a tailor finish his work in time for Christmas.

Visit The House of the Tailor of Gloucester where this charming story is told.
