Making the most of Gloucester

Welcome to our website promoting Gloucester City Centre; events, businesses and sharing news and information regarding the Four Gate streets of Gloucester.

‘FourGates’ is a voluntary, not for profit Social Enterprise company, which seeks to improve the communication and information around our City for residents and visitors alike. Whether to plan your visit or to just get the most out of all our City has to offer, the difference in what we do is its free for everybody, users and businesses. The main elements of this website include:

A comprehensive Business Directory – Providing a ‘what is where’ list of all the businesses, shops and even places of interest within Gloucester City. We also include and list the premises opportunities for your business that exist in the City of Gloucester.

A Calendar of Gloucester Events – Listing what’s  available to see and do at the varied venues in and around our City.

Latest Gloucester News – Providing a round-up of some of the key news and views about Gloucester City Centre.

As the name suggests, this website primarily focuses on the four ‘Gate’ streets around the cross in the centre of Gloucester. The reason is that whilst great things also happen at the Quays and elsewhere around the City, the City Centre needed to advertise all it has to offer to you – an online audience. We are not trying to duplicate anything else that goes on, but complement it, link to it and share all the positive things we have.

Gloucester is so rich in history and heritage, it’s in the top 10 in the country of containing the most sites of significance. But we must not forget the present and the future, Gloucester has a fantastic amount to offer.

We welcome your feedback, suggestions and support. For more information about what we do, or to find out what you can do to help, please get in touch.
