Key Facts about Cheltenham

Cheltenham: Cheltenham is a town in England and home to the renowned Cheltenham Festival, a 4 day horse racing event held annually in March at the Cheltenham Racecourse. Locals have a reputation for being wealthy and respectable, and a short walk along the Promenade will give you a first-class view of their wonderful houses, shops and gardens. But it wasn't always this way, Cheltnam was just your average, sleepy town before the discovery of a mineral spring in the 18th century, it is to this that the town owes much of its air of gracious refinement. It still boasts many graceful Regency buildings, theatres and manicured squares and you can find fine art at The Wilson museum. Cheltenham is in a great location to visit the Cotswolds, lying just west of the hills of this much-loved range. Think of the Cotswolds as unspoiled rolling countryside, cosy little villages, authentic market towns and houses built from the range’s golden oolitic limestone.
