Like Bath, Cheltenham owes much of its fame to the discovery of mineral springs. By 1740 the first spa had been built, but the town really became in vogue when it was visited by George III and Queen Charlotte in 1788. Further visits by the Duke of Wellington, the national hero of Waterloo ensured its status. The mineral waters can still be tasted at the town’s Pitville Pump Rooms, built in the 1820’s and now a museum which charts history of the town through an extensive costume collection.
Cheltenham is also host to several important English festivals: National Horse racing in March (The famous Cheltenham Gold Cup), the food and drink festival in June, music festival (Jazz) and cricket festivals in July and the Literature Festival in October. It is also very well positioned to explore the Cotswolds and Oxfordshire.
