Cheltenham lies on the border of the Cotswolds, an official AONB, or Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in the South-West of England.
Cleeve Hill overlooks Cheltenham, and is the highest point in Gloucestershire, standing at 1,083 feet. The small River Chelt flows under and through the town.
Cheltenham is host to many cultural activities throughout the year, perhaps the most famous being the Cheltenham Festival, which consists of four days of horse jump racing held every March.
The town is also known for its Regency buildings, one of which is the Pittville Pump Room, a leftover of Cheltenham’s spa town past. There is some fabulous art to be seen at The Wilson museum, and the Victorian Everyman Theatre should not be missed.
