Williamsburg and Hampton Roads Sights

Duke of Gloucester Street

  • Neighborhood/Street

Fodor's Review

The spine of Colonial Williamsburg's restored area is the broad 1-mi-long Duke of Gloucester Street. On Saturday at 1 pm from March to October, the Fifes and Drums Corps marches the length of the street and performs a stirring drill. Along this artery alone, or just off it, are two-dozen attractions. Walking west on Duke of Gloucester Street from the Capitol, you can find a dozen 18th-century shops—including those of the apothecary, the wig maker, the silversmith, and

the milliner.

Living History

Great place for kids to learn while having fun. A little hint you can walk down the street for free it only cost to go into the buildings and to participate in the activities.
