Gloucester is a beautiful city situated in the west of England. It dates back to the Roman era and provides visitors with an eclectic mix of history, arts and culture. Find a cheap deal on car hire in Gloucester and explore more of the city and the gorgeous countryside that surrounds it.

If you rent a car, Gloucester can be your base for perfect holidays in rural England...

However, there's plenty to see in the city itself before you discover the freedom of the open road.

The city of Gloucester has hundreds of buildings of historical interest. Some of the best include the awe-inspiring Gothic Gloucester Cathedral and the ninth-century St Oswald's Priory. The Gloucester Tailor Beatrix Potter Museum and Shop and the historic Gloucester Docks are also well worth a visit.

Children will be particularly smitten by the cathedral, which isn't a sentence that is heard very often! But little muggles will be thrilled to see some of Harry Potter's famed Hogwarts School - the stunning cloisters of the cathedral were used during filming as a corridor at the fictional wizarding school. Youngsters will also enjoy the thrill of leisure cruises along the Sharpness Canal, which can be taken from Gloucester Docks, while little travellers can experience life on the canals at the interesting Gloucester Waterways Museum, where the chance to dress up never fails to amuse young minds. Of course, Beatrix Potter is loved by children around the world too. Visit the House of the Tailor of Gloucester - the writer stayed in Gloucester and was so inspired by this quaint shop that she penned 'The Tailor of Gloucester'.

After a tour of the city, it's time to get out and explore. 

Gloucester car hire deals give visitors the freedom to discover the rolling countryside and quaint villages of the surrounding areas. You can visit at any time of year but spring and summer are especially lovely.

Book your rental car well in advance to secure the best deals and then collect your vehicle in one of the convenient downtown locations in and around the city centre. To find the best price on car hire in Gloucester use TravelSupermarket's search tool.
