Hire a car with Avis when you next visit Gloucester to discover the best of the city and its picturesque surrounds. Located in the west of England and surrounded by some of England’s most beautiful scenery, Gloucester’s roots date back to Roman times. Dubbed the cathedral city of the Cotswolds, it offers visitors an abundance of historical landmarks, shopping and cultural spots.
During your tour of Gloucester, the timbered Tudor houses, Gloucester Cathedral - which dates way back to 681 - and the pretty dockland and quayside areas alone are sure to leave a lasting impression. Children will also love the city of Gloucester. The cloisters of the cathedral formed part of Hogwarts School in the films depicting JK Rowling’s world of Harry Potter, and the shop which inspired Beatrix Potter to pen “The Tailor of Gloucester” still exists in its original building.

Hire a car in Gloucester and you’ll be connected to many parts of the UK, with a network of roads that run towards Cheltenham, Bristol, Bath and beyond. The Cotswolds, just east of the city, provide the perfect backdrop to start an unforgettable road trip. As you leisurely weave your way from one sleepy village to the next, you’ll feel as though time has stopped, while discovering centuries-old cottages, churches from the Middle Ages, and half-timbered buildings.
After the tranquil scenery of the Cotswolds, feel refreshed to then journey south to the Georgian spa city of Bath, further east to the university city of Oxford, or an hour north to the town where Shakespeare was born, Stratford-Upon-Avon. Driving west from Gloucester will bring you over the border into Wales and the Brecon Beacons National Park. Get back to nature by exploring this stunning mountain range that showcases vast green valleys, flourishing landscapes and spectacular lakes.
If you still have time on your hands, consider continuing south to the bright lights of Cardiff. If you have chosen our flexible one-way car hire option, you can even finish your journey here instead of doubling back.
