Lying very close to the Welsh border and on the River Severn, located between the Cotswolds to the east and the Forest of Dean to the southwest, Gloucester is the official county town of Gloucestershire and is famed for being a major transport hub with a multitude of train, bus and coach connections. Originally a settlement for retired Roman soldiers back in the Millennia, the town flourished in medieval times when the UK’s public flocked to the tomb of King Edward II and the construction of one of England's most beautiful cathedrals. Economically the city is dominated by its various service industries and has a strong financial and business sector as home to the bank of Cheltenham & Gloucester; historically the town is a prominent feature within the aerospace industry.
Gloucester is a hot bed for direct and response marketing.
