Gloucester bills itself as the ‘cathedral city of the Cotswolds’. It has a fascinating and deep history from Roman time right up to its importance to aerospace engineering in more recent times.
Gloucester sits close to the Welsh border, and is the country’s most inland port. Indeed, it is at the historic docks that the city is experiencing exciting regeneration. It’s impossible to think of Gloucester without paying heed to its proximity to both the Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean, both shaping its character.
Gloucester is a city dominated by service businesses and a very strong financial sector.
