If there is one thing that this page should tell you it’s that there are countless great pubs showing sport in Gloucester. The locals in this part of the world are absolutely mad for their sport, some more than others, and in Gloucester there just happens to be lots of pubs showing rugby. It’s hardly a surprise given its proximity to the rugby heartland of Wales and, for this very reason you will often encounter a truly memorable atmosphere whenever the rugger is on. It’s well worth coinciding your visit with the Six Nations or, if you’re lucky, the World Cup. You no doubt remember exactly where you were for Wilkinsons winning drop-goal in '03, and I hope you're content with the memories. But just imagine being plotted up in one of these fantasti oldie-worldie pubs. Now that is what dreams are made of.
You’d be downright daft if you went to Gloucester and didn’t venture into one of the top-notch sports bars to take in a game. You won’t find a friendlier bunch of people anywhere on these islands. Whatever team you’re there to support, you can bank on having an absolute whale of a time. So whether you’re looking for pubs showing Manchester United or Oxford United, MatchPint will have somewhere just right for you, whatever the occasion. And if it just so happens that you actually prefer Wales to England, then you could always have a look at pubs showing sport in nearby Cardiff. Don't worry, we won't tell.
