Hmmm, Gloucester or Cheltenham?

Wondering if you should visit Gloucester or Cheltenham?

The easy answer is…

Both!

The two towns are close together and can easily be visited for a day each over one weekend.

If you really want to narrow it down, the question of whether to visit Cheltenham or Gloucester depends on what you’re looking for!

Cheltenham is a spa town full of grand Regency-era architecture,as well as lots of parks and green spaces. It’s known as a bit of a shopping destination, and also has lots of fab bars and restaurants to enjoy. Of course, being a spa town makes Cheltenham a perfect destination for a spa weekend.

Gloucester, on the other hand, has more attractions and historic sights, most notably its incredible cathedral.

The city’s Historic Docks had a redevelopment in recent years, creating an attractive riverside area where the red-brick warehouse buildings now contain modern flats. This area also has many bars, restaurants, as well as the popular Gloucester Quays outlet shopping mall.

We hope you’ve found this weekend itinerary and guide for Gloucester and Cheltenham helpful!
