A trip to Gloucester, Cotswolds in England was in fact relaxing.

1. National Waterways Museum

Well, unless you’re a big fan of waterways, you probably will be disappointed spending 10 pounds to go to this museum. I understand the museum needs the entrance fee for maintenance but I would expect more to be seen in the museum. There are two floors and we were really trying our best to enjoy ourselves so that we wouldn’t feel that we had just burnt our money. T—-T

2. Gloucester Quays

Gloucester Quays is actually a shopping mall. It is not mega but huge enough to keep us occupied for awhile. I like Gloucester Quays as it was not crowded despite Christmas was round the corner. People were pretty relaxed here compare to other towns like Reading and Bristol. It seems to be a nice place to get away from the congested city. There are also some fancy cafes, pubs and restaurants near Gloucester Quays.

3. The Lord High Constable of England

We came to a familiar pub – The Lord High Constable of England which is a JD Wetherspoons pub located at Gloucester Docks. From outside, it is a standalone building. When we stepped inside, Weatherspoon is huge. Wetherspoon has spent £1.67 million on the site of the former Coots Café, at Llanthony Warehouse.

The pub features a large bar, a double-sided feature fireplace and an impressive beer garden overlooking the docks. There is also a paved beer garden to the front of the pub. I like the atmosphere in the pub. Even though it was crowded during lunchtime, it had provided enough space for the customers.

We picked a spot on the second floor, overlooking at the Gloucester Docks. If you love pub food, Wetherspoon seems to be a great place to be, the price is relatively cheap. The fish and chips are tasty and table service is quick despite the crowd.

Address: Llanthony Warehouse, Llanthony Road, Gloucester Docks  Gloucester Gloucestershire GL1 2EH

4. Robert Raike’s House

Passing by a characterful sixteenth-century timber framed building, it caught my attention due to its extraordinary design. This beautiful townhouse once belonging to local philanthropist Robert Raikes and this is now a quirky, city centre public house you can dine on a summers day.

Address:38 Southgate Street, Gloucester, Gloucestershire, GL1 2DR
