Gloucester Docks

It was Carol’s last day in Cheltenham so we visited the Gloucester Docks for a brief view of the collection of converted Victorian warehouses, shops, museums, restaurants, and cafes.  We didn’t stop to shop in the Quays Outlet Center since our luggage space is limited.  We enjoyed wandering around the interesting redeveloped Victorian port and stopped for a quick snack and drinks at the Portivo Lounge, a unique bar and restaurant located within an old corn mill near the Quay shops.  Several large canal boats were in residence taking advantage of the shops and restaurants.  Preparations were underway for the Christmas market and upcoming holiday events.  Gloucester has done a remarkable job preserving the history of the docks and creating an atmosphere that attracts both residents and visitors.  We continued our stroll around the port and took lots of interesting photos before heading back to Cheltenham.
