The Gloucestershire Way is a long-distance footpath, in the English country of Gloucestershire. It was devised by Gerry and Kate Stewart, of the Ramblers Association and Tewkesbury Walking Club. The 100-mile (160-kilometre) route, which uses existing Rights of Way, goes from Tutshill, just north of Chepstow, crosses the river Severn at Gloucester, proceeding then to Tewkesbury, with a 'Worcestershire Way Link'.

In detail the stages are:

Chepstow to Parkend – 13.5 miles (21.7 km)
Parkend to May Hill – 14 miles (23 km)
May Hill to Gloucester – 13 miles (21 km)
Gloucester to Crickley – 12 miles (19 km)
