Cheltenham is blessed with lots to see and do, and some great places to eat.
Cheltenham is an ideal base from which to explore the Cotswolds and beyond whether walking, cycling, driving or using public transport.
For walkers, our good friends at Cotswolds Luggage Transfer can collect larger bags and deliver them on to your next stop along the Cotswold Way, leaving you free to explore. We are very happy to work with Hillwalk Tours, who can plan your route, luggage and accommodation for you.
If you plan to travel around the Cotswolds, TravelLine South West is essential for planning your public transport. We recommend you download their app to your phone. The Bus Checker app is also useful.
