New Inn (Gloucester)

The New Inn is one of the many historic timber framed buildings in the ancient city of Gloucester.

It is situated in Eastgate Street, one of the four Roman streets radiating from the Cross, which has been the centre of the city for two millennia.

The New Inn was built as a pilgrims' hostel in the 15th century.

It has a gallery in the courtyard, similar to the well known one at the George at Southwark in London.

It was at the New Inn that Lady Jane Grey, from Bradgate near Leicester, was proclaimed Queen. The 16 year old Jane was Queen for nine days before being deposed in favour of Mary I.
