London has too many buildings to be characterised by one architectural style. This is due, in part, to the varying ages of its buildings with dating back as far as the 11th century, such as The Tower of London. Many of London's large, opulent, houses and public buildings, such as the National Gallery, were constructed using Portland stone. However, different parts of the city have styles of their own. For example, the area to the west of central London is characterised by white stucco buildings. Although some do exist, few of London's surviving buildings pre-date the Great Fire of 1666. Those that do may have a trace of Roman remains or are of Tudor origins.
London is also a very green city with many parks and open spaces for inhabitants and visitors to enjoy. In central London there are a number of Royal Parks: Hyde Park and its neighbour Kensington Gardens, Regent's Park which is home to London Zoo, Green Park and St James's Park. Further out from the centre there is Greenwich Park, Bushey Park, Richmond Park and Victoria Park. Primrose Hill and Hampstead Heath to the north of Regent's Park are popular spots to view the ever changing London skyline.
Located in the county of Gloucestershire, the historic city of Gloucester lies on the River Severn and is close to the Welsh border. Gloucester is a friendly, relaxed and safe city. Recent developments have seen the city emerge as a key regional centre with a lifestyle and culture of its own. It is entirely possible to while away an entire afternoon and evening in one of the many coffee shops and pubs.
In the heart of the city in College Green is the Norman cathedral with its fan vaulted cloisters and great east window. The nearby pedestrianised shopping area can be reached by a walk down narrow cobbled streets, passing ancient buildings on the way. From the shopping area it is a short walk to the Victorian Docks with its impressive converted warehouses. In the dock you will see many different kinds of vessels from narrow boats to sea going ships. Pleasure boats also depart from here that will take you on a journey through the past when Gloucester was a thriving commercial port.
The wider Gloucester Quays area is a favourite for visitors, with a great mix of waterside museums, bars, cafes, restaurants and Designer Outlet shopping plus beautiful new communal squares, walkways and dramatic public art, all nestling comfortably alongside the docks’ maritime heritage.
