Gloucester Cathedral

Gloucester Cathedral was built from the 11th century on the foundations of a 7th century abbey dedicated to Saint Peter. The current late Gothic structure is largely the result of developments undertaken in the 14th century by the Norman Benedictine abbot Serlo and his successors who decorated the transept and choir. The cathedral houses the tomb of King Edward II.

Tewkesbury Abbey

With its enormous and imposing central tower, Tewkesbury Abbey is a Norman church built on a cathedral scale. The sheer size of the building is further emphasised by the west end, which is entirely made up of a huge arch that rises to the full height of the nave. The look and feel of grandeur is continued inside, where giant pillars soar up to the roof.
