Gloucester Cathedral

With an 1,300 year long history, the Cathedral is one of the most significant heritage destinations in the South West of England. Read on to find out more about the Cathedral’s world-famous architecture, including the magnificent medieval Cloisters and Great East Window.

Keeping this architecture in the best possible condition simply wouldn’t be possible without our dedicated team of specialist stonemasons, who are based here at Gloucester Cathedral. Meanwhile, our Archives and Library help to ensure our story is told for generations to come.

The Folk of Gloucester

The Folk of Gloucester is a project situated within a 16th century Tudor building with the City community at its heart. Honouring and learning about our past, by bringing people together from the present, we aim to keep the history of Gloucester City alive through the telling of stories.

Gloucester is a beautiful, vibrant, and diverse city full of history and we intend that everyone in the local community will have the opportunity to be involved in The Folk of Gloucester. Through the display of objects, exhibitions, and delivery of programmes and events we will bring to life the stories of the people of the City of Gloucester from the Tudor period to the present day.
