The Docks are an interesting combination of a working shipyard continuing to flourish in amongst large Dock Warehouses that are being adapted and restored as non shipping businesses and residential appartments. Well worth a visit when in Gloucester.

This is where the more modern bars and restaurants etc are. Lovely to have a wander round and go to the shopping centre too. Lovely pub next to the docs to enjoy a shandy in a summers day!
