Gloucester Green is a square in central Oxford, England, and the site of the city's bus station12 It lies between George Street to the south and Beaumont Street to the north To the west is Worcester Street and to the east is Gloucester Street

The green was once an open space outside Gloucester College now Worcester College, after which it was named From 1783 to 1915 a fair was held on the green, and from 1835 to 1932 it was the site of the city's cattle market In 1935, after the cattle market had been moved, the western half of Gloucester Green became the site of the city's bus station, and the eastern half became a car park1 In 1987, a major redevelopment of the area began The eastern half became a square, surrounded by shops, restaurants and residential accommodation A new, smaller, bus station was built on the site of the old bus station, and an office block was built between the bus station and Worcester Street An underground car park was also provided

Today, the Gloucester Green bus station is the Oxford terminus for long-distance coach services, including services to London and route X5 to Cambridge3 The bus station is too small to accommodate more than a few local bus services

A food market is held in the square every Wednesday4 and an antiques market every Thursday

Close by are the Burton Taylor Studio theatre on Gloucester Street and the OFS Studio in the Old Fire Station on George Street
