Trains to Gloucester

Gloucester railway station first opened in 1840, and was originally a terminus – to this day, most trains that call there have to reverse out of the station, with the exception of services travelling onward to South Wales. The current buildings date back to a major rebuilding project in 1977, which gave Gloucester the second-longest platform in Great Britain. Over 600 metres long, it was built to enable the station to serve two Inter-City 125 trains at the same time. The city is perhaps best known for the beautiful Gloucester Cathedral, a Gothic masterpiece constructed between 1089 and 1499. It co-hosts one of the oldest music festivals in the world: the Three Choirs Festival, founded in 1719. The cathedral is about 15 minutes' walk from the station, via busy, mostly pedestrianized shopping streets, and on the west side of the city centre you'll find attractively redeveloped docklands, dotted with shops, pubs and restaurants.
