Cheltenham Spa – a Regency Gem

When you visit Cheltenham Poetry Festival you will enjoy the cultural riches of a beautiful Regency Town. 


Picture shows Pittville Pump Rooms – you can’t sup the waters here anymore but you can take in music, exhibitions and more!  

Cheltenham Spa, the cultural centre of The Cotswolds, was described in the New York Times as a town enjoying a cultural renaissance with many “happening spots”, and featured in the  Independent as a “Design Destination” with stylish places to eat, drink and stay.

A trip to Cheltenham Poetry Festival means you can enjoy the stunning architecture of our iconic Regency town, visit our beautiful green spaces such as Pittville Park or Sandford Parks Lido or indulge in al fresco dining at many of our superb cafes and restaurants.


The iconic ‘Montpellier’ area of Cheltenham – the perfect place to shop, enjoy fine food and take in the architecture. 

Lovers of architecture will find many gems to enjoy – Cheltenham is famous for its impressive Regency, Georgian and Neoclassical architecture.

Easily accessible from the M5, Cheltenham lies just over an hour away from Bristol and Birmingham and under two hours away from London.  There are excellent transport links by rail and road to the town. Bordering The Cotswolds, Cheltenham offers an excellent base from which to explore the area too.

So why not join us in April 2018 and enjoy a feast of literature in this gem of a town.
