Living in Cheltenham
Cheltenham bustles with great things in guises traditional and modern, from its famous horse racing and local football, to a full complement of gyms, pools and spas. Notable literary, jazz and science festivals populate the town's cultural diary throughout the year.
The Wilson art gallery is a nearby treasure, host to a varied, modern-leaning artistic programme. The Cheltenham's main library, an iconic Victorian sandstone building, is just next-door on Clarence Street.
Those with adventurous palates will discover some of the finest new dining possibilities in the Cotswolds. Michelin-starred classicists like Le Champignon Sauvage and urban innovators like the Chelsea Bar and Brasserie are all nearby.
Beyond the familiar high street occupants you'll find thriving independent shops, from the much-loved Boston Tea Party café to the locally produced goods of Cheeseworks.
