Cheltenham did surprise me, I wasnt sure what to think about this little city because my first week was in the countryside of Cotswolds were I was staying in a town with only a few streets!

Cheltenham has been a health and holiday spa town resort since the discovery of mineral springs here in 1716. It began as a Saxon village. At the time of the Domesday Book (1086) it was a small village with a population of less than 200, now it is 110,000 and a striving lovely and lively village with very friendly people and those who I spoke to loved living there!

I loved it in Cheltenham, the people were really nice, there were beautiful churches and parks and the streets felt very safe to wander around and explore to my hearts content!
