Gloucester is a well-known city in United Kingdom as it has played a prominent role in the history of England. It was here that William the Conqueror ordered a survey of all the land in his kingdom, to be recorded in the Doomsday Book. It lies in England (Gloucestershire), 80 km (50mi) from the city Caerdydd. Since 1086, the year of the Doomsaday Book, Gloucester was popular with Norman monarchs and its magnificent cathedral was used for coronations (e.g. Henry III, 1216). There are other impressive buildings around the cathedral, e.g. College Court with the Beatrix Potter Exhibition and St Peter's Church , and you should not leave aside the Tailor of Gloucester either. A great museum complex has been created in former Gloucester Docks , whose part is still a port which is linked to the Bristol Channel by the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal (built in 1827). In the old port you can visit the National Waterways Museum to learn more about the fascinating history of English canals. The Robert Opie Collection - Museum of Advertising and Packaging is worth seeing, too. Gloucester and surrounding plains offer trips which will not exhaust you much so that you can explore a lot of other opportunities for entertainment - with the whole family you can discover e.g. the Zoo Bristo l.
