Gloucestershire is a county in South West England. The county comprises part of the Cotswold Hills and the entire Forest of Dean. The county town is the city of Gloucester, and other principal towns include Cheltenham, Stroud, Cirencester, and Tewkesbury.
Gloucestershire borders the preserved county of Gwent in Wales (now Monmouthshire), and in England the counties of Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire, Somerset and Bristol.
The seven districts of Gloucestershire are Gloucester, Tewkesbury, Cheltenham, Cotswold, Stroud, Forest of Dean and South Gloucestershire (Unitary). There are several royal residences in Gloucestershire, including Highgrove House, Gatcombe Park, and (formerly) Nether Lypiatt Manor.
Gloucestershire originally included the "small town" of Bristol. The "local" rural community moved to the port city, (as Bristol was to become) and Bristol's population growth accelerated during the industrial revolution. Bristol became part of the administrative County of Avon in 1974. Most of Gloucestershire’s old market towns have fine parish churches. At Deerhurst near Tewkesbury, and Bishop's Cleeve near Cheltenham, there are churches of special interest on account of the pre-Norman work they retain.
Gloucester, the city, district and county town of Gloucestershire lies close to the Welsh border, and on the River Severn, 32 miles north-east of Bristol, and 45 miles south-southwest of Birmingham. Economically, the city is dominated by the service industries, and has a strong financial and business sector, being home to the bank Cheltenham & Gloucester and historically was prominent in the aerospace industry.
Gloucester is served by the M5 motorway, which runs to the east of the city and the A38 running north–south through Gloucester connecting the city with Tewkesbury and Bristol.
Cheltenham is a spa town and borough in Gloucestershire. Cheltenham is on the edge of the Cotswolds and has an image of being respectable and wealthy. Cheltenham is the home of the flagship race of British steeplechase horse racing, the Gold Cup, the main event of the Cheltenham Festival held every March. The town hosts several festivals of culture.
The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the "Heart of England", an area 25 miles (40 km) across and 90 miles (145 km) long. The Cotswolds lie mainly within the ceremonial counties of Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire, but also extend into parts of Wiltshire, Somerset, Worcestershire and Warwickshire.
Gloucestershire is currently investing in attracting tourists to visit the many sites and diverse range of shops in the area. An annual "cheese-rolling" event takes place at Cooper's Hill, near Brockworth and the Cotswold Games occurred within the county.
