The history of the importance of inland waterways is epitomized here over 2 floors, incorporating bringing the Severn and man made channels to make way for larger ships to come so far inland. Interesting audio giving information during the visit explaining what you were looking at, other than the Mariners Church adjacent to the museum and the narrow boats in the basin, the Quays have lost a lot of the seafarers of old character, replaced by apartments, in what were bonded, grain and storage warehouses.We had a lovely lunch at The Barge Restaurant, excellent food and service.The Gloucestershire Yeomanry Military Museum worth a visit once past the alterations to the access.The streets in the City of Gloucester were filthy, with litter, also beggars and rough sleepers in evidence. Five years since our last visit, we're in no rush to go back again.
