    Nestled between the Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean lies the cathedral city of Gloucester, Britain’s most inland port. Gloucester really is a unique city; one that must be seen and experienced first-hand to believe, and there is something for everyone, whatever their age or interests.

    There's lots going on in Gloucester in the run-up to the Platinum Jubilee, as well as over the Jubilee weekend itself.
