  • The museum was a little dull to be honest. At £8 it was over-priced too. We missed the last boat trip (1.30pm) so it was just the museum. It’s not really worth a visit here without the boat trip.

  • We stopped to explore the Quays and popped in to see the museum. The cost was well worth the visit with a great exhibition and a knowledgeable guide.

  • Lovely cafe in a great setting. You can people-watch out of the windows. Fantastic afternoon tea here for Mother's Day. Nothing was too much trouble, even adding jam sandwiches and vegan sausage rolls for my daughter. So much food we ended up taking some cakes home with us. All delicious. I would definitely come back here.
  • Pay the extra for the boat trip, you won't be disappointed! Friendly team working there. Some good exhibits; we especially liked watching the talking-head videos/interviews with gentlemen that had worked the canals. Good price cafe just inside the entrance with seating inside and out. We went as a couple (no kids with us) and would recommend to anyone spending some time in Gloucester.
