We have a full day in Gloucester as we are staying two nights. The day started with a run along the River Severn which ended at the Gloucester Cathedral.
We arrived at the cathedral just in time for a guided tour which was given by a volunteer who was a retired GP(Genera Practice doctor). He was one of the best tour guides we have experienced as he was so energetic, knowledgeable, well spoken, giving rapid fire history lessons and he was so into this cathedral and town.
Later in the afternoon we did a tower tour of Gloucester Cathedral. We have become senior stair-masters with all of these tower tours and are usually the oldest, most fit and least breathless of our groups.
We very much enjoyed our one day stopover in Gloucester. The cathedral is definitely worth a visit.
