We can’t talk about all the great places to shop, eat and visit in Gloucester City without saying more about the Cathedral.  This stunning, Romanesque & Gothic style building began life back in the year 1089 and was only completed in 1499!  The Cathedral clock that was installed in 1898 was made by Dent and Co, the same company who built Big Ben’s clock. Two of the Bells situated in the tower date back to 1420, the largest bell weighing in at just under three tons is named Great Peter and rings faithfully on the hour and just before a main service. This historical and beautiful building has been used several times as film set locations, including some of The Harry Potter movies, a couple of Doctor Who episodes and a Sherlock Holmes special.
