County in England

Gloucestershire is a county regarded for its charming beauty and outstanding views. It is home to the Cotswolds, whose familiar heights give the county its romantic and rural appeal. Also contributing to Gloucestershire's allure is the River Severn, Britain's longest river, and the Royal Forest of Dean, one of England's few remaining ancient forests.

The dignified villages and towns of Gloucestershire owe much of their charm to the use of the warm, honey-coloured limestone which was locally quarried by hand and used alike for humble weavers cottages, mansions and churches.
