A flotilla of ships have travelled 16 miles inland for a Tall Ships Festival being held this weekend.
Around 100,000 people are expected at the Gloucester Docks to enjoy them.

The Gloucester Tall Ships festival begins today (Friday 24 May). The bi-annual event takes at Gloucester docks and lasts until Bank Holiday Monday.
Visitors can expect a grand flotilla of sailing vessels, live music, food stalls and arts. The festival will feature famous boats such as the 'Amazon' which took part in the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant last year.
