The National Waterways Museum Gloucester is at the heart of the rejuvenated Gloucester Docks, with several car parks just a few minutes walk of the museum.
National Waterways Museum Gloucester
You'll find us right in the heart of Gloucester's historic docks. Just follow the brown signs to Historic Gloucester Docks from M5 junctions 11a or 12, the A38, A40 or A417.
Pay and display parking is available on both Southgate Street and also at Gloucester Quays. The museum is inbetween the car parks, just a couple of minutes walk from both.
Park and ride services are available, Monday to Saturday, from Waterwells, Quedgeley (near M5 junction 12). The route passes the entrance to the Docks.
Gloucester railway and bus stations are across the road from each other on Bruton Way. The museum is a 15 - 20 minute walk via Clarence Street, Eastgate Street and Southgate Street. There is a taxi rank at the train station and near the bus station.
If you're going green and walking to us, access to the docks is near the corner of Southgate Street and Commercial Road.
You can more your own boat in the docks for 48 hours for free (on a first come basis). Or £10 per night depending on how busy it is, for up to five days. You'll also find visitor moorings on Llanthony Pontoons. We have water points and electric points in the Basin. See our walking route map below for details.
