SULA lightship in Gloucester Docks


Luxury guest suite on the UK’s only historically registered, stay aboard Lightship. Based in Gloucester Docks within walking distance of Gloucester Quays, museums, Gloucester Cathedral, restaurants, and bars.

Self-catering suite for up to 4 adults from one family or social group, comprising 2 bedrooms, shower, lounge/kitchen/diner, and external sun deck with views overlooking Gloucester Docks and Llanthony Secunda Priory.

LV14 Sula is a converted Lightship, retaining a lot of the original design requirements and features. She is a Registered National Historic Ship, number 2447. Sympathetic alterations have been carried out but a number of features cannot be changed and, because of this, she does not have to comply with The Equality Act. Unfortunately and regrettably, she is unsuitable for guests with wheelchair or other mobility concerns.
