Duke of Gloucester Street

Duke of Gloucester Street 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.
