Guide to Gloucester Docks

Published: Wednesday, 05 May 2010

BRITISH Waterways has produced a fold-out full colour guide for Gloucester Docks, for families exploring the historic port.

The guide has been specially commissioned to make families across Gloucestershire aware of these heritage rich settings right on their doorstep.

South Wales & Severn Waterway Manager Nick Worthington relates:

"Gloucester has a wealth of heritage just waiting to be discovered and our fabulous dock system lies at the heart of this. Add walking attractions like the imposing Gloucester & Sharpness Canal and rural visitor hubs like Saul Junction and you have the perfect combination for a family day out."

The fold out leaflet containing maps, information and all the contact details visitors need will be distributed to over 70,000 homes within the wider Gloucester City catchment area later this month.  In addition  a 'high profile billboard campaign' will enforce the message that Gloucester Docks is a must visit venue this summer.
