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!
My cute little hotel room! it was absolutely tiny but adorable! it was all the space I really needed and it was right next to the High Street so perfect location as well
Sandford Park right behind my accommodation
The pub life in Cheltenham definitely included beer… a lot of it…
… and more beer yet again! this was a really funky craft beer pub, I loved the pouring handles! how unique and original!
some interesting graffiti 🙂
The Bath Tavern right next to the Bell Inn… how do all these pubs make money!?
There were plenty of churches everywhere here as well
St Lukes Church, a beautiful church with a cute blue door
Mont Pellier Street with its upper class shops and boutiques
Ladies Cheltenham College
Cute buildings around the outskirts of the city
The further out of the city you get the different the building styles become
