If you are visiting Gloucester on a Sunday or Monday Blackfriars is well worth a visit. It is only open on these two days every week until 3 pm. The building is historically very interesting as it was a medieval monastery that was converted into a large house that later became derelict. It has now been restored and is used for events. However the building is beautiful and hidden away most of the time - like so many interesting and historic places in Gloucester. You have to know where it is.

St Michael's Tower is a beautifully preserved building on Gloucester's Roman town centre. It hosts the civic trust and is the place to go when you want to join the very inexpensive guided history tours. It is also possible to get audio headsets for self-guided tours. I took my family on one of the tours and it was excellent - even my 16 year old was fascinated. Well worth a visit if on Gloucester and interested in History.
