A charming location full of wonderful Georgian architecture, Cheltenham has worn many hats over its life time. First recorded in 803 as ‘Celtan hom’, the town made an appearance in the Domesday Book of 1086 as ‘Chintenham’. Little more than a village it wasn’t until 1716 when the spa waters were discovered that things started to happen. When King George III dropped by in 1788 to experience the restorative waters for himself, suddenly Cheltenham became the next big thing and the nobles and fashionable folk of the day all helped make it a hip and happening spa town.
In 1815 horse racing began in the area which soon became one of Britain’s finest race courses. The inaugural Cheltenham Festival took place in 1905 which today includes the Champion Hurdle, Champion Chase and Gold Cup. It is the biggest event on the calendar and brings in huge numbers of visitors and a major boost to the local economy. During the Second World War the course was mostly given over to the war effort and was used to store goods and equipment in preparation for the D-Day landings.
Today Cheltenham is a funky town with great independent shops, good bars and restaurants, highly rated schools and a number of notable industries such as aerospace.
While the town might be best known for the famous horse racing festival, there are actually a number of notable (non horsey) festivals throughout the year including food festivals, literature, jazz, science, beer and comedy.
