Day 201 – Gloucester / Cheltenham / Stratford Upon Avon, England

We began the day with a visit to the magnificent Gloucester Cathedral, home to the tomb of King Edward II. After exploring this beautiful structure, we took a walking tour of Gloucester’s city center. Next we hopped in our rental car and drove to Cheltenham, a neighboring city which we also explored on foot. We concluded the day in Stratford Upon Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare. Stratford Upon Avon is absolutely charming with its many half-timbered buildings and independent shops.
