Famed for it’s festivals, Cheltenham is a Gloucestershire town sitting on the edge of the Cotswolds making it big on both culture and countryside! Originally a Spa town, the Georgian buildings of some streets will have you feeling like you just stepped out of a Jane Austin novel.
Hostels in Cheltenham give travellers easy access to the town and attractions. You could stay in a city-centre hostel with free WiFi, tea and coffee. Or book into a budget Cheltenham hostel with great restaurants and bars just around the corner.
Cheltenham is made up of several different neighbourhoods. Montpellier is the lively area with quaint cafes, classy wine bars and independent shops. Or head to the suburb of Pittville which houses a large park and the pump room, a former spa building which now has a new life as a concert and events hall.
Cheltenham has a great mix of traditional and modern culture. When visiting, one of your first ports of call should be the Everyman theatre. The main auditorium designed by architect Frank Matcham is a visual masterpiece. If you happen to visit in September, then the Cheltenham paint festival is another thing to add to your list. There’s plenty of street art to see all year round though and you can even hop on a bike to explore the 4-mile route of art around the town.
Cheltenham’s bus and coach station is in the centre of the town, offering easy local connections to the railway station and beyond. The town is easily accessible on bicycle or by foot. Taxi ranks can be found at Cheltenham Spa Railway Station, Montpellier or The Promenade.
