Welcome to Cheltenham

City Description  

The city of art and water, Cheltenham has that distinctive English charm and a British natural elegance. A famous spa resort within the land of Shakespeare, it spans the heart of the green county of Gloucestershire. Highly reputed in England, primarily for the quality of its water, this bourgeois commune prides itself on a flourishing, to say the least, past and a flattering present.

In fact, George III, the famed King of Great Britain, was one of the first to entrust his well-being and cures to this place, the motto of which presently still remains, "Health and Education". This focus on relaxation saw the development of the city as far as its establishment as a first-class architectural and cultural heritage site.

The Pittville Pump Room is one of the most beautiful illustrations of such. This Regency-style building is the most eloquent symbol of the elegance which characterizes Cheltenham. Initially designed to provide public health cures, due to the circumstances, the building became a cozy and popular place, where people can come and have a good time. 
Another remarkable place is Cheltenham Town Hall. A majestic and splendid public building with Corinthian columns, it will be sure to charm visitors who take refuge at this spot. 
The large central area homes a magnificent spa, which spurts harmonious plumes of water to soothing sounds.
Dynamic and modern, Cheltenham also offers its guests a whole host of activities. The Pavilion confirms such, a privileged meeting area, which offers an eclectic program all year round and serves as an excellent means to experience culture.
Far from conventional, Cheltenham provides a tranquil break and represents a boundless source of inspiration.
