Abbeydale and Abbeymead are modern suburbs of the city of Gloucester in the county of Gloucestershire, England. They lie approximately 3 miles southeast of the city center and are bounded by the suburbs of Coney Hill to the northwest, Barnwood and Hucclecote to the north and northeast, Matson to the southwest and the M5 motorway to the south and east. Mostly connected with Segregated Bicycle Paths into Gloucester city along Metz Way. The village of Upton St Leonards is immediate across the M5 motorway.

The two suburbs are contiguous and share many amenities but there is a clear definition of where Abbeydale ends and Abbeymead begins. The River Twyver Separates Abbeydale and Abbeymead.

Most of the Abbeydale area was green fields until around 1970 when the Heron Park development was constructed by Heron Homesteads. At that stage, it was officially known as “The Land to the East”

The whole area is served by several frequent bus routes operated by Stagecoach West, the 2, 2A, 8 and 13.
