Three Different Ways to Visit Cheltenham
Everyone has different preferences when they visit a new town, whether you visit alone or bring all your friends, this article will be a great guide for the different ways to explore Cheltenham!
The Food Trip
A great way to explore Cheltenham is by touring the best food places the town has to offer.
Why not start your day in Cheltenham with a health kick and visit Vinnie's Eatery just off Clarence Street. Vinnie's Eatery is a lovely independent vegan/vegetarian cafe that offers plenty of options for breakfast, from cinnamon pancakes to 'the vegan all day', a great alternative to the greasy traditional British breakfast. The cafe also has amazing smoothies and smoothie bowls if you want to start your day with a burst of energy!
For lunch why not take a stroll up the beautiful Montpellier and visit Archie's Dog Cafe. A wonderful little cafe that welcomes dogs and humans of all shapes and sizes, so you can enjoy your lunch with a furry friend or two!
For dinner, Cheltenham offers a vast amount of different restaurants and cuisines, many of which are chains. So why not branch out and visit the beautiful Thai Emerald in St Geroge's Place. Although it may not look the most grand from the outside, upon entering the restaurant you will be greeted with a beautiful fountain and will be seated on intricately carved wooden chairs with plants hanging down around you and authentic service - you will almost forget you are even in Cheltenham at all!
The Family Visit
Cheltenham is a very friendly town which makes for a great place to be able to visit with the whole family, especially on half-terms, with lots of events happening around town.
For entertainment for the whole family, Cheltenham offers numerous different locations to watch a show. Whether at the Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham Playhouse or Cheltenham Town Hall, you are bound to find something the whole family can enjoy on your visit.
The centre of activities for families in Cheltenham has to be The Brewery. Located in the heart of Cheltenham, The Brewery has its own crazy golf called Mr Mulligans which features wacky designs like volcanos, dinosaurs and a UV light section. It also has a cinema, bowling, Creams Cafe for amazing waffles/pancakes and The Play Farm where kids can really let loose.
Just outside of Cheltenham is Over Farm, which offers a variety of different activities to entertain the whole family, from the outdoor cinema, open air plays, family trails to enjoy nature, music festival and 'Spookyard' every Halloween filled with activities throughout the half term.
However, you don't always need to visit anywhere in particular or pay money to have a good time with the family. Instead, if it's a nice day you can always visit one of Cheltenham's many parks. Possibly the most popular, and a great one for picnics, is Pittville Park which offers great views of the lake and a lot of space to play games and let the kids run free. Another great place to take the family is Hatherley Park, which is a charming ornamental park made up of around 5 hectares of parkland and has two children's play areas, a junior football pitch and a wildlife pond.
The Nightlife Trip
Fancy a trip with your friends? Cheltenham's ever-changing nightlife scene makes it a great place for a fun night out!
One of Cheltenham's newest cocktail bars is Door 4 in Montpellier. Sensational in design and infused with contemporary vigour and elegance, Door 4 challenges the concepts of drinks by making cocktails that stand out from the crowd. Another great cocktail bar is Turtle Bay, a Carribean themed bar with a great range of cocktails that are 2'4'1 until 7pm and again from 9:30pm until close. However, if you really want the full cocktail experience why not head over to The Botanist in The Brewery and learn how mixologists create their delightful cocktail creations and talk you through how to make your own!
If you want to dance, Bierkeller is a great destination, holding a quiz every Tuesday before the DJ takes over and everyone dances on the tables with huge cocktail steins 2/4/1 before 10pm!
In terms of nightclubs, Cheltenham's top places to dance are MooMoo Clubrooms (best suited for teens and those in their 20s), Thirteen Degrees, 21 Club, Revolution which turns into a dancefloor (best on Fridays) and Under The Prom (packed on race week) which includes a mixture of people of all ages.
And of course, if you're visiting Cheltenham for a night on the town you'll need somewhere to crash afterwards! So why not book into Premier Inn, conveniently located in the High Street, but far enough away from all the nightlife to get a quiet night sleep! Or if you fancy something a bit more up-market, then why not book into the Queen's Hotel and enjoy a meal at its restaurant and bar, with a luxurious night stay and breakfast in bed the next day!
