Obviously, our museum will be the highlight of your day out in Gloucester Docks. But, there's so much more to see and do that you can spend an entire day exploring the area.
With its mix of listed warehouses and modern bars and restaurants, Gloucester Docks are a great place for a day out.
Once you've spotted our historic boats and explored the museum, jump onboard one of our current boat trips. They have a history to share that’s all their own.
That’s docks, rather than ducks but look out for them too on your stroll around the handsome, historic Gloucester Docks. Just remember not to feed them any bread – that’s the ducks, not the docks.
An urban environment may not seem a likely place for wildlife but why not investigate wildlife habitats with a difference as one of our brilliant team will take you on the fun wildlife trail, which runs through the museum.
Who doesn’t like sitting back and relaxing beside the water with your favourite tipple – or much needed cuppa – in hand? Luckily, Gloucester Docks now boast a delicious range of bars and restaurants. As well, of course, as our very own Llanthony Tea Room, which is also the place to head for ice cream.
We’re not the only museum in the city. Other nearby museums include the Tailor of Gloucester, a Beatrix Potter-themed museum and shop and the Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museum.
Discover over 2,000 years of fascinating history during a 90 minute stroll with an expert guide. Civic Trust walking tours are one of the best way to learn about the rest of the city of Gloucester and its rich history.
Shop ‘til you drop. You’ll find plenty of independent shops and many more familiar shops in the Gloucester Quays Shopping Centre. As well as its multiplex cinema, restaurant quarter and many festivals.
