Filed under: Tourism — Posted by: Barry on August 27, 2016

The South West county of Gloucestershire is one of the most attractive in the whole of the United Kingdom, due to its good fortune in being composed of parts of the Cotswold Hills, the whole of the Forest of Dean, and the valley of the River Severn. This makes it one of the best places to live, work or visit as a tourist.

As well as being very beautiful, there is always something going on in Gloucestershire to keep you entertained. Here are just three things you can do in the county this September:

1. Hot air balloon rides

Taking hot air balloon flights is one of the most exciting things you can ever do, and the county of Gloucestershire is undoubtedly one of the best places to do so, for all of the reasons we mentioned above. There is nothing quite like flying over the beautiful Forest of Dean in a floating hot air balloon, which will enable you to get a bird’s eye view of all of the beauty to be found there, including a vast array of stunning wildflowers, ancient oak and beech trees, fallow deer and eve wild boar.

2. Prestbury Ghost Tour: Historical Haunted Trail

If you happen to be in the Prestbury area of Gloucester on September 2, and you are looking for something a bit different to do with your weekend, you may want to check out the Prestbury Ghost Tour, which is sure to send a shiver down your spine with creepy local tales told by professional and experienced storytellers. These include the spooky story of the Charging Cavalier, the terrifying tale of the Black Abbott, and the strange story of Fiddler’s Hill. The event will last approximately 1 hour 45 minutes, and sets off from the King’s Arms on Prestbury High Street.

3. Fosseway Artists at Nature in Art

Taking place between September 6 to 18, the Fosseway Artists at Nature in Art event is one for lovers of both nature and the creative arts. The special exhibition, which will be held at Walsworth Hall, will feature artistic creations in a range of media, including sculpture, print and paintings, that showcase the inspiration that the nature of Gloucestershire has provided for a well-known local arts group that has been around since 1865. This will be the artists’ second time exhibiting at Nature in Art, and it’s sure to be a good one.
