    6 Quirky Facts About Cheltenham

    1. Alice in Cheltenham-land
      Once upon a time there was a young lady named Alice Lidell who lived in Cheltenham, her grandfather was good friends with a writer named Charles Lutwidge-Dogson who wrote under the pen name of Lewis Carroll. One day ‘Lewis’ took Alice and her sisters on a boat ride and entertained them with a story about Alice who fell down a rabbit whole. The looking glass that also inspired Carroll’s stories is still on display in the Liddell family home.
    2. Cheltenham’s Most Famous
      The Queen’s granddaughter Zara Phillips, Rolling Stone Brian Jones, Arthur ‘Bomber’ Harris Commander-in-Chief of Bomber Command and the Dam Busters Squadron, Richard O’Brien writer, composer and actor (The Rocky Horror Picture Show), World Cup hattrick hero Sir Geoff Hurst and one of Britain’s most loved Olympians, Eddie ‘the Eagle’ Edwards have all lived in Cheltenham.
    3. Spa Break
      In 1716 a group of pigeons pecking at a small stream led to the discovery of a mineral spring and perhaps Cheltenham’s lucky break. The healing waters soon attracted visitors to the town but it was the arrival of King George III in 1788 that helped transform Cheltenham into a fashionable and ‘respectable’ spa town with its famous regency architecture that still wows tourists to this day.
    4. Festival
      The Cheltenham Festival is one of the highlights of the British horse racing calendar, but did you know; there will be 134,000 train passengers during the festival, 45,000 cream teas will be served, 21,000 bottles of bubbly sipped and over 400 helicopter flights will take off/land. More than 300 chefs will be employed serving 6 tons of potatoes and 5 tons of salmon. In total the Festival is worth an estimated £100,000,000 to the local economy.
    5. I Spy
      Cheltenham is the home of the Donut, this rather rotund yet undoubtedly imposing building is GCHQ (Government Communications Headquarters) and is at the heart of the UK’s security teams. Yep, if James Bond went off to work, this is where he’d clock in. Established in the First World War, GCHQ relocated to Bletchley Park during WWII and was responsible for breaking the Enigma codes that helped defeat the Nazis.
    6. Out of This World!
      Aerospace and aviation are also a major part of the town’s history and current industry. The British and allies’ first jet aircraft, the snazzily named ‘Gloster-Whittle E.28/39 Pioneer’ was invented and built in Cheltenham by Sir Frank Whittle and Gloster Aircraft Company. Eventually manufacture was moved to the USA but Cheltenham is still a hive of innovation with many of its most recent ideas carried into space.

    About Cheltenham

    About Cheltenham

    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.

    Leisure

    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. Foodies are spoilt for choice, an area with great farmland there’s a selection of farm shops as well as artisan makers, producers, growers all selling their wares locally. Healthy for you and the environment.

    There are two theatres (Everyman and The Playhouse), a cinema, sports centre and a good selection of outdoor spaces for exercise, cycling, running or finding a new healthy hobby. If you’re way of letting off team includes a little retail therapy then you won’t be disappointed, alongside big brands and designer names, plus independent shops and a weekly market highlighting local crafts.

    There are golf and tennis clubs could help keep you fit or football and rugby clubs if you’re more of an enthusiast than a player.

    Transport

    Sitting on the A40, a short drive from Oxford, Cheltenham is also beside the M5 giving easy access to Bristol, Cardiff, South Wales and the Midlands. Good rail links can have you in London in 2 hours, Cardiff in 45 minutes and Birmingham in 1 hour, 9-minutes. The closest airport is Birmingham International, around 1 hour away.
