Although Gloucester is acknowledged as one of the top ten historic cities in England and is the county town of Gloucestershire, post code snobbery often tempts potential buyers to Cheltenham instead. Yet Gloucester has much to offer by way of bargains available in fantastic residential locations.
The city of Gloucester offers a wealth of historical links, with its Roman foundations, Norman cathedral and Victorian Docks. The city itself offers a wide range of shops, markets, restaurants, pubs and visitor attractions. In addition the Gloucester Quays combines a new shopping experience with adjacent restaurants, bars and multi-screen cinema.
Talking of restaurants and bars, there are plenty of eating places and watering holes to suit all tastes throughout the city. You will be hard pressed to find a national cuisine that is not represented and the variety of bars and pubs caters for all tastes, from the young and trendy to the traditional real ale drinker.
Transport is outstanding with easy road links to the M5 and beyond. The train station serves local destinations such as Cheltenham and Bristol, but also provides easy direct links to Birmingham, Cardiff and London.
Property currently available in and around the city includes everything from attractive dockside apartments to spacious detached family houses, including numerous new builds.
