We are sorry that due to limited space, parking in the Cathedral Close is restricted to pass holders only.
There are eight disabled parking spaces which are for use by Blue Badge holders on a first come first served basis.
However, there are several public car parks within easy walking distance of the Cathedral.
Arriving by Public Transport
The Cathedral is located in Gloucester Town Centre, so the best way to get here is by public transport.
We are a 10-15 minute walk from both the train and bus stations. You can also use Gloucester’s Park and Ride.
There are bike racks available on Cathedral Green. Route 41 of the National Cycle Network runs through the Cathedral grounds – find out more about the route here.
