The upscale town of Cheltenham is very conveniently located in Gloucestershire and is well placed for accessing the whole of the Midlands, London, the South, Birmingham and the North. Cheltenham is also a regency spa town and, therefore, part of an elite group of these types of towns in Britain. What’s more, the surrounding area, the Cotswolds, has been designated as one of outstanding natural beauty.
Since the early 18th century when the mineral springs were first discovered, the town has been a favourite health and holiday destination for visitors. Today, it has several internationally famous and historic public schools, not to mention the many race meetings and various festivals. With so many reasons to visit the town, hiring a car is a great option for anyone planning to stay in the town itself, or for visiting further afield.
