From humble beginnings as a modest market town, Cheltenham became one of the most fashionable health resorts in the country. In 1716, in a meadow outside the town, pigeons were found to be pecking at what turned out to be salt crystals at a spring which led to the establishment of the town as a Spa. The importance of the pigeons leading to the discovery of the 'Spa Waters' is reflected in three pigeons being included in the Cheltenham Coat of Arms.
Visitors can still sample the Spa Waters at the beautiful Pittville Pump Room.
The Promenade is considered to be one of the most beautiful thoroughfares in the country, with its tree lined avenue flanked by smart shops and cafés.
The Regency town of Cheltenham is where Zara Phillips (Queen's eldest granddaughter) and husband Mike Tindall have their home.
With a continental feel, enjoy Cheltenham's cafe culture, wrap up and grab a bite to eat al fresco at some of the many high street and independent restaurants, cafes and bars across the town, or check in to one of the many fantastic hotels and cosy up in front of a roaring fire!
The Brewery Quarter is a buzzing district where old meets new and is home to branded stores, a multi-screen cinema, bowling alley and bars offering live gigs and entertainment throughout the week.
