An exciting place for eating, drinking and entertainment, the Leisure Quarter is an attractive waterfront setting next to the Historic Docks. On 6th December, a state-of-the-art 10 screen Cineworld cinema opens at the quayside Leisure Quarter. And with new restaurants including Zizzi, Chimichanga and The Real China plus bars and a health & fitness centre, the new Leisure Quarter brings a fantastic recreational offer to Gloucester.

This has been a place of Christian worship continuously for over 1300 years, since Osric, an Anglo-Saxon prince, founded a religious house here in 678-9 AD. Little is known for certain about the communities which worshipped here or the buildings they used over the next 400 years although it is believed that the Benedictine Rule was introduced here early in the 11th century.

The former dock estate has become a popular free destination where visitors can enjoy interesting views and a range of modern facilities while wandering around a remarkably complete example of a Victorian port. Views include many fine warehouses and other dock-related buildings that have been found new uses. Where ships once discharged their cargoes, there is now an ever-changing miscellany of visiting narrow boats, smart motor cruisers and the occasional yacht or tall ship.
