Mini guide to Stroud

     

Stroud, in the county of Gloucestershire, is a pleasant unspoiled market town surrounded by five sweeping valleys and some truly awesome panoramic scenery. Now famous for its annual Fringe Festival, the town is a popular visitor spot offering both its own attractions and those of the surrounding Cotswolds area.

Woodchester Mansion, set in a secluded valley near Stroud and reputed to be haunted, is one of the area's most popular sites of historic interest. The Victorian mansion was abandoned by its builders back in 1868 before the architectural masterpiece was completed and it remains virtually untouched.

Both Stroud town and the surrounding district are famous for attracting creative people, and the district has now allegedly overtaken Cornwall as the most popular home for authors and artists in Britain. The Stroud House Gallery is a local spot where visitors can appreciate the creative talents of some of the district's inhabitants. The gallery is home to all manner of contemporary art displays from both famous and unknown artists.

Stroud's pubs and restaurants offer both great food and a range of locally brewed beers. Brasserie, Italian and Indian eating establishments are also available. For evening entertainment, the Everyman Theatre in nearby Cheltenham offers some fantastic professional stage productions.

Just outside Stroud is Stratford Park, 56 acres of greenbelt dedicated to relaxation and local leisure pursuits. The park offers a wide range of amenities including gardens, woodland walks and an ornamental lake. During the summer the bandstand is home to local brass bands that perform for the crowds every Sunday afternoon.

Stroud and surrounding Gloucestershire are served by the M5 motorway, while the A46, A38, A419, A4135 and A4173 also lead into the town. For rail travellers there is a station in the town itself and there are other stations at Cam and Dursley and Stonehouse. The nearest international air connection for Stroud can be found at Bristol.
