Experience the cultural exuberance of Cheltenham, a spa town famed for picturesque countryside, the glow of Cotswold limestone architecture, and the jingle of horse-racing festivals. Its lively streets weave a story rich with Regency history and Georgian splendour, embellished with fine dining experiences, stylish boutiques and a constellation of friendly pubs. Immerse yourself in the pomp and pageantry of the Cheltenham Festival, a horse racing spectacle that draws enthusiasts from far and wide.
Set out in your car to explore the Cotswolds, a countryside paradise right at Cheltenham's doorstep. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) is easily traversable by car, with storybook villages, rustic inns, and lush valleys dotting the landscape. The trip is an enjoyable 22-minute drive from Cheltenham to Bourton-on-the-Water, endearingly labelled the 'Venice of the Cotswolds'. Another gem is the regal town of Cirencester, an enticing 29-minute drive from Cheltenham. Visiting the Cotswolds by car provides a charming, unhurried journey through the heart of rural England.
Another well-worth exploration by car from Cheltenham are the historic cities of Bath and Oxford, each around an hour’s drive away. The City of Bath, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, entices visitors with its legendary Roman baths and stately Georgian houses. On the other hand, Oxford, the 'City of Dreaming Spires', is renowned for its prestigious University of Oxford and its beautiful historic buildings. Exploring these cities with the freedom of a car allows you to fully experience their historical significance and architectural beauty.
