Outing to Gloucester

Posted by Charles Etchells on 3 December 2017

Long Eaton & District Horticultural Society Outing to Gloucester Victorian Christmas Market.

On a very cold, bright winter morning, we set off on our annual Christmas shopping trip. Our driver had played his part by trimming the coach with decorations and twinkling lights, so we were soon in a holiday mood.

On arriving at Gloucester we were dropped at the outlet shopping centre, which started off well, as there were many bargains to be had.Then on to the historic docks where the market was being held, stalls offering a variety of food, drink, art, jewellery and many unusual Christmas gifts, even an open air ice rink for the very brave!

A number of us made our way to the city centre to visit  Gloucester Cathedral, what a magnificent place this is. As Edward II is buried there, the cathedral escaped being demolished during the reformation so the building and wonderful stained glass windows remain intact.   The cloisters in particular are beautiful, these were used in three of the Harry Potter movies, standing in for Hogwarts.

A very full and enjoyable day.                  Pat Skelson        December 2017
