I spent the first 25 years of my life, living in Cheltenham. It once had the reputation of being "poor, proud and pretty" - I think the last two descriptions are more relevant these days. I'm not wearing rose tinted specs, I know that Cheltenham has it's poorer, run down areas. To me this adds to the appeal of the town. There has been a lot of changes to the town - not all for the best. The traffic system in the centre of town is a nightmare. The wanton demolition and dereliction of some of Cheltenham's finest buildings is a cause for shame. At this point. I must mention The Odeon in Winchcombe Street - a splendid example of Art Deco design, being left to ... Read the complete review

Cheltenham is the first place in the UK that has ever truly felt like home for me. It has a bit of everything. First and foremost, it is a beautiful spa town that can give the likes of Bath and Tunbridge Wells a real run for their money. It has the races and the Gold Cup. It is a clean city (unlike Bath) and has much less traffic and traffic wardens. Eating out is fab with dishes from everywhere from the Caribbean to Poland. The shopping is really diversified too - all the usual suspect high street shops and some really nice unique boutiques. Pittville Park is huge and very well kept compared to the parks in other large towns of Cheltenham's stature. Cheltenham .. Read the complete review

As a long-standing resident of Cheltenham, I feel able to provide a valuable insight to a Cheltenham that goes somewhat against the traditional grain. Descibed as cosmopolitan and rich in history, culture and class, Cheltenham has certainly become renowned in recent years with its contributions to the Literature and Arts Festivals, as well as horse-racing and the National Hunt. However, dig a little deeper than the classy Georgian terraces of Montpellier and large suburban houses of Hartherley and there's a darker side. You see, Cheltenham "ain't all it is cracked up to be". Take a stroll down the Lower High Street or through studentville (St Pauls ... Read the complete review

Cheltenham Spa, the ‘Center For The Cotswolds’ is one of the cleanest and most sophisticated towns I’ve ever visited. I’ve recently changed jobs and as a result, this has led to me moving house from Manchester to Cheltenham. Cheltenham became a Spa town in 1716 and it is said that in 1788, King George III brought his royal family to Cheltenham to ‘take the waters’ and following this, the seal of approval was firmly placed on Cheltenham as the most fashionable of spa towns. Within the centre of Cheltenham there is a feeling of wealth with the classic ‘regency’ architecture, which makes up the towns ... Read the complete review

....please don't take offence with the title - You're as old or young as you feel! Anyway, I have lived in a village outside Cheltenham for about 11 years. Bishops Cleeve is a lovely place to live, located just at the bottom of Cleeve Hill. From the top of Cleeve Hill you can see all the way across to Wales! I’m from Yorkshire, moved to London & now live in Cheltenham & I can tell you there is no place I’d rather be (well, apart from somewhere with sun, sand, seas & sangria!) **Some background stuff about Cheltenham** Cheltenham became a spa town in 1716 – According to legend this was discovered as a flock of ...
