Cheltenham, also known as Cheltenham Spa, is a regency spa town and borough which is located on the edge of the Cotswolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Gloucestershire, England.

There's lots more to do: look for gifts at Treasure Seekers Gift Shop, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Gloucester Cathedral, browse for treasures at Upstairs Downstairs, and explore the ancient world of Tewkesbury Abbey.
