Gloucester is a large southern English city, lying very close to the Welsh border, making it an excellent mix of a busy city centre with links to simply beautiful countryside settings. Like many cities in the south of England, Gloucester was founded almost 2,000 years ago by Romans; in Gloucester's case it was originally founded as 'Colonia Glevum Nervensis' in AD 97. Gloucester is a bustling and wealthy city, with a very strong financial and business sector supporting the city's economy. In addition to this, Gloucester's sea links (with Gloucester sea port) have provided the city with excellent trade routes for hudreds of years, especially allowing it to flourish during the industrial revolution.
But with its new found wealth and central business culture, that doesn't mean that Gloucester has forgotten about its roots - in fact, Gloucester is a deeply historical city with so much of its history on show proudly for you to visit. One of the most key features in Gloucester's history is Gloucester Cathedral (12 College Green Gloucester GL1 2LX). Originally built in 681 to commemorate Saint Peter, Gloucester Cathedral has been an important religious place of worship for hundreds of years, and has become one of the most historic and iconic buildings in the city. In recent years, aside from its intended purpose, the Cathedral has been somewhat of a movie star, appearing in the very famous Harry Potter movies - in fact, it has appeared in three of the movies in total! With this modern fame, and long stretching history, surrounding this iconic cathedral, why not get the movie star treatment yourself? Our Lincoln limousine hire service in Gloucester gives you the finest opportunity to experience the same level of luxury limousine travel that Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson will have experience for the Harry Potter premiers! The Lincoln limousine is an iconic style of luxury limo, and is frequently used for Hollywood movie premiers and red carpet events; and now its available to you in Gloucester for an amazing cheap limo hire price. Hiring the Lincoln limousine for your day out in Gloucester from us at Limo Hire means that you don't have to have a movie star's bank balance to be treated like one!

And once your day out is finished, we even have a Gloucester limo hire service that includes all day travel, so you can be picked up in the same lavish style you arrived in, and taken in comfort back to your cosy hotel room!
Another key historical building, that still plays a big part in the modern life of the city of Gloucester, is the church of St. Mary de Lode. Situated immediately outside of the Gloucester Cathedral grounds, the site of the church is believed to be the first Christian church in the whole of Britain; arguably one of the most important features of Britain's past! Despite being close to the huge and elegant design of the Gloucester Cathedral, the church of St. Mary de Lode offers a much more quaint and traditional church feel to the area. It is a much more tranquil setting, offering a more reserved sense of beauty for a church building. It displays absolutely beautiful Norman architectural features, making it an absolutely amazing setting for a wedding day in Gloucester. It is an absolutely perfect wedding venue, offering a much more traditional setting than more modern hotel, manor house or registry office weddings. Plus, with it being situated so close to the Gloucester Cathedral, it is in the perfect location for stunning wedding day photos. So if traditional is your thing, then Gloucester can offer you the best for your wedding ceremony.
