Why move to Cheltenham?

Situated in the heart of Gloucestershire, the elegant Regency town of Cheltenham is known as the cultural centre of the Cotswolds. As well as being steeped in history and distinctive architecture, the town has a thriving arts scene. Every year the town plays host to an array of festivals to suit every taste, including the Cheltenham Jazz Festival, the Cheltenham Music Festival, the Cheltenham Literature Festival and the Cheltenham Food & Drink Festival. The town is equally famous for the well renowned Cheltenham Racecourse, where you can have a flutter at British Steeplechasing’s most prestigious event - the Gold

A little bit of history
Cheltenham started life as an Anglo-Saxon settlement, growing into a modest market town until the 18th Century. Mineral springs were discovered in 1716 attracting aristocracy of the time, including King George III in 1788 and securing its status as a fashionable destination. With popularity came extensive building, including fine terraces and crescents that remain today. In the 19th Century the popularity of spa towns faded, but Cheltenham remained popular due to the wealth and gentry that boosted Cheltenham’s economy over time.

Need to know
Cheltenham was one of the first towns in England with electricity. The original electrical substation is now home to the Strozzi Palace boutique hotel.

Shopping
Cheltenham has a wealth of shopping options. Take a stroll along the tree-lined Promenade to browse in Martin & Co. jewellers and Promenade Antiques, as well as high street favourites such as Cath Kidston and Jigsaw, and a monthly farmers’ market. If you fancy something out of the ordinary, the Montpellier Quarter is home to independent retailers and boutiques, from men’s clothing at Union Project to high end fashion at Boutique 3. Meanwhile in The Suffolks you’ll find an abundance of homeware shops such as Skandic Hus, and The High Street offers all the usual essentials, and main high street brands.

THE CHELTENHAM EXPERIENCE WOULDN'T BE COMPLETE WITHOUT A DAY OUT AT THE RACECOURSE. THERE ARE LOTS TO CHOOSE FROM, INCLUDING THE FAMILY-FRIENDLY NEW YEAR’S DAY MEETING AND THE LIVELY FESTIVAL MEETING IN MARCH.
