Gloucester Docks reviews
Great selection of shops with good choices. The staff in all the shops are polite and always helpful, it’s also a great place for a wide selection of eateries.

The way they've developed the port/docks area is fabulous. And there's a great choice of restaurants. Just a short walk from the stunning cathedral. .

Easy to spend a day here. The furthest inland port in the country, Gloucester docks has been transformed. As well as the residential flats in the old warehouses, there's a large retail area nearby, the canal museum packed with exhibits and plenty of places to shop, eat and drink. However, the historic feel remains thanks to a mixture of sympathetic & careful planning and mixed use. There are still barges and boats moored around the docks and a ship repair business on the north side. Remnants of the area's industrial past are dotted about too. Look for the short stretches of preserved railway tracks, the old heavy rings used to moor large sailing vessels and the equipment used to load and transport cargo.
A lovely well documented walk through the docks, similar to the renovation of Albert Docks in Liverpool. Loved the Maritime church, lots of seating available, a good range of eateries. Also visited the outlet village. Loved the mix of old and new buildings together.
