City Centre Tour 7. College Court & St Michael's Gate

College Court, a picturesque and medieval lane, and St Michael’s Gate used to lead to a cemetery in the precincts of St Peter’s Abbey.

As there were many churches in the centre of Gloucester, there was little space for burials, hence this area was set aside for that purpose.

The archway was immortalised in Beatrix Potter’s illustrations for ‘The Tailor of Gloucester’.
