When you think of Gloucester, what comes to mind? Perhaps it’s the Gothic architecture of the 11th century Gloucester Cathedral, which houses Kind Edward II’s tomb. Or maybe it’s the Tailor of Gloucester, the Beatrix Potter-themed gift shop where you can find collectibles and a modest museum. Maybe it’s one of the other wonderful museums of the city - Nature in Art, Gloucester Life, the National Waterways Museum, or the Soldiers of Gloucestershire. It all depends on your interest and preference.

History, art, contemporary culture, shopping, eating, or sightseeing, no matter what suits your fancy, this southwestern English city has something for everyone. Sounds inviting? Check out these fabulous Airbnb vacation rentals, in Gloucester, Great Britain.
