Exploring the Cotswolds : Gloucester

Hello there!
How is your week going?
We had an unexpectedly lovely walk around our county town Gloucester this week. Some times Gloucester loses out to it’s more glamourous neighbour Cheltenham but It was a real treat to wander the streets at 7pm in the balmy spring evening air. Such a wo
nderfully welcome break from the Siberian blast we have recently been on the receiving end of!
The Mr and myself pottered along to The Cathedral, which was waiting for us, silently majestic in the heart of a bustling city.

This enormous doorway really put into perspective how tiny we are, and how clever our predecessors have been in creating such a special building.

Some canny eyed readers may recognise some parts of the Cathedral from the Harry Potter films.You can take a virtual tour here. The Cloisters are a worth a post on another day to themselves. It is so easy to forget how awe inspiring this building must have seemed to the Pilgrims who had traveled to visit from faraway lands, and how imposing it must have been on the skyline.

The city is full of history and amazing backdrops, check out this chevron style door!

My favourite part was this mosaic in the middle of the pavement.

I will definitely try to explore this pretty city on my door step.
These are picked from my Instagram, and have made up much of my One little Word project this week.
