A Stroll Around The Victorian Christmas Market At Gloucester Quays

A visit to the Victorian Gloucester market has rapidly become an annual necessity for the local people of Gloucester. There is something for young and old alike, from the world’s biggest selection of cheese to the old fashioned merry-go-round.

I am always partial to enjoy a soothing cup of mulled cider whilst embracing the surrounding festive scenery. I had a very enjoyable Friday afternoon catching up with an old friend.

Gloucester Quays first opened in 2008 and has brought the city a number of outlet stores, chain restaurants and a brand new multi complex cinema. Twenty years ago many of the warehouse buildings looked derelict and lifeless at the docks; the new complex has given the place  a new lease of life with its posh luxury lettings and designer stores.

You’d be mad to miss the Victorian market even if you’re not looking to buy; it’s a great Christmas novelty that will whisk your November blues away. The market  is open at 10 am on Saturday and ends on Sunday at 5 pm.
