The elegant yet vibrant spa town of Cheltenham is a must whilst on your summer break in Gloucestershire. There’s plenty of opportunities to shop til you drop - you’ll find a wonderful blend of old and new in the shopping quarters of Montpellier and The Suffolks, or there’s the Brewery Quarter with trendy retail outlets, a bowling alley and a multi-screen cinema. Go on a guided tour to take in the stunning Regency architecture, stroll along the leafy Promenade, or visit the famous Pittville Pump Rooms. Little people will love the Paint-it-Yourself Pottery, the soft play centre at the Play Farm, and the lovely parks and gardens; there’s one with a lido and table tennis! If you fancy some culture drop by the Wilson Art Gallery & Museum, or see what’s on at one of the theatres. And when you’re hungry there’s a host of restaurants, pubs and cafes to choose from, some where you can sit outside and soak up the upbeat continental vibe – you won’t be disappointed, after all, Cheltenham has justly earned itself a reputation as the food capital of the Cotswolds.
