Gloucester Docks were once the deepest and widest in the world. Today, old dock buildings house new museums, shops and cafes making it a great place to visit for the whole family.
We say new, but our much-loved Gloucester Waterways Museum has been renovated, refreshed and rebranded thanks to over £1m from the Heritage Lottery Fund and DCMS/Wolfson Museums & Galleries Improvement Fund.
The Grade II listed warehouse hides a marvellous surprise of bright, engaging galleries with stories of the communities that lived, and continue to thrive, along on the River Severn, Gloucester & Sharpness Canal and your wider wonderful waterways.
