Explore Gloucestershire

Our campus will be the hub of your student life, but it’s also a springboard for a much bigger adventure. With some of the best attractions, landscapes and events in the country right on our doorstep, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to fun things to do at the weekends. For high street shopping, great food and the latest movies, Gloucester and Cheltenham have everything you need. The public bus, Swanbrook, runs regularly from campus, so you can pop in for fun with your friends. If you’re more of an outdoor explorer, you’ll want to go kayaking down the Wye Valley, climbing and caving in the Forest of Dean or mountain biking and exploring in the Brecon Beacons and Malvern Hills. Sports fans can take their pick from the horseracing at Cheltenham Racecourse, rugby at Kingsholm Stadium in Gloucester and football at Cheltenham Town FC. You could watch something different almost every weekend. Gloucestershire is home to over 45 festivals. From 2000trees, Lakefest and Barn on the Farm music festivals, to the Frightmare horrorfest, you’ll find something you love in the local festival scene. Cheltenham’s science, literature and music festivals are fantastic for something different.
