Gloucestershire is a county in the south-west of England. Here you'll find glorious scenery such as the Cotswolds, Forest of Dean and Wye Valley (bordering Wales) to name just a few of the Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Visit Cheltenham for the steeplechase horse race or attend one of its many festivals: jazz, music, food and drink, literature (or course!) or science.
