Gloucester is a city and district in southwest England, the county city of Gloucestershire. Get out of town with these interesting Gloucester side-trips: The Cotswold Brewing Company (in Bourton-on-the-Water), Corinium Museum (in Cirencester) and Sudeley Castle (in Winchcombe). And it doesn't end there: get outside with The Cotswold Range, appreciate the extensive heritage of Gloucester Docks, admire the striking features of Gloucester Cathedral, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Old Baptist Chapel.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Gloucester trip maker site .

Atlanta, USA to Gloucester is an approximately 14.5-hour combination of flight and car. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from Atlanta to Gloucester due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Atlanta in May, with highs in Gloucester at 63°F and lows at 51°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Shipston on Stour.
