A brief history of Gloucester’s Civic Buildings (aka “You have no authority here!”)
Gloucester’s civic buildings, since the Roman occupation of Britain, provide a fascinating insight into how the city was run and managed. Its administrative buildings were many, with a variety of functions. Join us in exploring our online exhibition, looking at the institutions that created the modern cathedral city we know today. Have a closer look at some of those buildings (many of them no longer with us), and see for yourself their interesting history, and the characters associated with them.
