Enjoy a weekend break to Gloucester and Bristol with plenty of time to explore these famous cities. The magnificent Gloucester Cathedral is well worth a visit and will be recognisable to many as it was used in the Harry Potter films as Hogwart’s School. Spend time around the restored Victorian port, admiring the boats or enjoying the leisure and shopping facilities in the restored warehouse buildings. We also spend a day in Bristol; the Harbourside is now a cultural zone with museums, shops and a wide range of cafes and restaurants in a historic setting. It is also home to Brunel’s famous steamship, the SS. Great Britain.
We will be staying at the Hallmark Hotel on the outskirts of Gloucester. It is a comfortable modern hotel with en suite bedrooms, a stylish brasserie restaurant and extensive leisure facilities including an indoor pool, steam room, sauna and spa. Although the hotel does not have a lift, there are a number of ground floor bedrooms available on request, but please note not all areas of the hotel are easily accessible for passengers with mobility problems.
