To make the most of a visit to Gloucester make sure you call in at the Tourist Information. We were given a free map of the city and made aware of all the places to see and directions to get there.

Visited Gloucester on a Sunday and was disappointed and surprised to find that the tourist information office was closed. Fortunately had "researched" potential attractions before but would have liked a local map to see where each was.More
