Award-winning
Gloucester Tall Ships
returns to port this May... savvy?
Gloucester’s flagship festival returns to the city this
May Spring Bank Holiday (Saturday 23–Monday 25 May).
After winning Silver for the Cotswolds Tourism Event
of the Year for the 2013 festival, the impressive
tall ships will once again weigh anchor this spring
for a weekend of live entertainment and activities.
The unique sight of grand sailing ships moored
in the UK’s most inland port, Gloucester’s perfectly
preserved Victorian docks, is an experience to behold.
Just ask the producers of Disney’s Alice Through
The Looking Glass who filmed here last summer.
The fun-filled festival is a big hit with families
with something for everyone.
14
www.thecityofgloucester.co.uk
Making their Gloucester Tall Ships debuts are the
brigantine Morganster, handmade schooner Atyla
and Baltic trawler Keewaydin (more announcements
to follow). For the first time, the ships are open
all day on the Saturday, Sunday AND Monday, so
there won’t be any ship enthusiasts left high and
dry. Buy a wristband to see the tall ships at close
quarters whilst also gaining entry to the museums
at Gloucester Docks.
On-water activities include pirate ship battles,
replica boats from the Viking age through to
the Napoleonic era.

The Gloucester Stone Carving Festival

Where to Stay
Whether you’re looking for luxury, a sense of history, a room
with a view of rolling countryside or a homely guest house
– Gloucester has it all.
Each accommodation listing within this guide clearly displays the quality rating.

star ratings from 1–5. Cotswolds Tourism offer a local scheme where accommodation
providers receive a basic assessment checking that the accommodation is safe,
clean and legal. Some accommodation providers have opted out of the assessment
schemes and are clearly marked as ‘Ungraded’ on their listing.
HOTELS A hotel must have a minimum of 6 bedrooms with all bedrooms having
ensuite facilities or a private bathroom.
GUEST ACCOMMODATION These properties are often smaller than hotels with
more of a family feel and approach. This category includes bed and breakfasts,
guesthouses, inns and restaurants with rooms.
