Gloucester Docks (Gloucester)

Gloucester Docks form one of the most significant features of the old cathedral city of Gloucester.

Gloucester, although an inland city, became an important port when the 16 mile Gloucester to Sharpness Canal was constructed, linking it to docks at Sharpness, the British Channel and the Atlantic Ocean.

Today, many of the warehouses have been put to other uses, and the Docks constitute a very popular tourist attraction.

There are shops and restaurants, and the National Waterways Museum. Unfortunately, the popular Museum of Advertising and Packaging, set up by Ian Opie, has closed.

There is also a small seamen's church, while just outside the Docks is the Museum of the Gloucestershire Regiment..
