Guided Tours of Gloucester
The Trust has been awarded the Queen’s Award for Volunteering, with a special mention for our Gloucester Tour Guides.
In 2015 we reached a fantastic milestone as the Mayor of Gloucester made a presentation of some Gloucester souvenirs to the 100,000th person to enjoy a walking tour with one of our fully trained Gloucester Civic Trust Tour Guides.
Our friendly and knowledgeable guides will be pleased to take you on one of our walking tours. Join a City tour leaving from St Michael’s Tower at 11:00am from Monday to Saturday and on Sundays at 2pm throughout the summer or book a private tour at any time of the year.
The Choice is Yours.
The City and Docks areas are pedestrianised and all walking tours, except the Roman Times Tour, are suitable for wheelchair users.
Starting on Monday 1st April until late October a knowledgeable Gloucester Civic Trust tour guide will lead a walking tour of our historic city.
The tour departs from the Trust’s city centre headquarters at St Michael’s Tower (telephone 01452 526955) at 11am each day apart from Sundays and is priced at £5.00p person with no charge for sixteen year olds and younger.
No need to book, just turn up and tour.
As well as tours, we also offer a range of talks by our Gloucester Tour Guides. For more information about the subjects available and costs, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
