Premier Inn Gloucester North

As with any hotel chain that offers bargain prices, you can't really expect to receive the kind of frills you'd receive at say a four-star independent hotel. But that said the Premier Inn Gloucester North does its best to make up any shortfall.

This spotless hotel close to the city centre is perfect for those seeking cheap but comfortable accommodation and excellent customer service.

Gloucester

UK travel information

A beautiful and historic city on the banks of the River Severn, a waterway which dominates the life of the local people. The National Waterways Museum commemorates a lot of the city’s past.

Gloucester travel

The cathedral is a magnificent building, used in many films – Harry Potter devotees include it on their pilgrimages to film locations. Other ancient churches are scattered around the city, as are many medieval and Tudor buildings, an example of which is the New Inn, dating back to 1450 when pilgrims used to rest there.

Festivals of various kinds are held frequently in Gloucester, the jewel in the crown being the Three Choirs Festival held here every third year. For a different type of music there is the Rhythm and Blues Festival, and the Cajun and Zydeco Festival, a  Louisiana –style three day extravaganza. A Medieval Fayre each year celebrates the historical side of the city.

Gloucester County Cricket Club holds a festival each year too, and there is a large dry ski slope for the really energetic visitor. Other attractions include Llanthony Secunda Priory, the remains of a once important outlying post of a Monmouthshire  abbey where open-air events and displays are put on for visitors today.
