How To Spend The Day When You Visit Cheltenham In The Cotswolds

In May of 2017, I took a long-awaited vacation to the UK to visit my sister and attend a blogging conference in London. These posts are my diary of a fantastic trip. I covered a lot of ground and I must say, came home quite exhausted and ready for another vacation. I will link all posts from that trip at the bottom.

How To Spend The Day When You Visit Cheltenham In The Cotswolds

Cheltenham is an excellent base from which to explore the Cotswolds. Whether you have a day or a week set aside, rest assured that you will have plenty to do. Cheltenham is renowned for its shopping, theatre and festivals. #travel #UK #Cotswolds

Cheltenham lies just over an hour away from Birmingham and just under two hours away from London on the M5.  Bordering The Cotswolds, it made an excellent base for us from which to explore the whole region. Whether you have a day or a week set aside, rest assured that you will have plenty to do, including many things that are free. Cheltenham is renowned for its shopping, theatre and festivals.

A visit should always begin with a good walk about. This is such a beautiful town. You just must explore it on foot first. I suggest you park your car at the Regency Arcade. (P.S. It is multi level parking complex. Either take a snapshot of your floor or write it down because trust me when I say, at the end of the day, you won’t remember where you parked the car.)

DINNER AT RISING SUN HOTEL ON CLEEVE HILL

THE SCREENING ROOM

I have never been to a movie theatre like this. We don’t have these where I come from. Look at the size of the seats and every one has an unobstructed view! Order your snacks when you buy your ticket and they bring it right to your seat. I ordered wine, which is not allowed back home either.

What a fabulous day we had in Cheltenham. I would definitely go back again.
