Gloucester, the county town of Gloucestershire, is situated on the River Severn, east of the Cotswolds and southwest of the Forest of Dean. Gloucester Cathedral, built on the site of a 7th-century abbey, is the city`s most popular attraction; it is also the burial site of King Edward II. Other points of interest include Medieval and Tudor-era buildings, including the only example of a Medieval courtyard inn with galleries left standing in Britain. The Docks district is filled with lively food, drink, and socializing options, all located inside beautifully-restored Victorian warehouses.
