Cheltenham is the perfect place for a short stay or a week long trip. It’s small enough to explore on foot, yet large enough to give you a huge variety of things to do on your staycation this year. Whether it’s sightseeing local attractions or going for fast-paced activities, Cheltenham has everything you need to have a great time. So, here are some of the best things you can do on your stay.
A relaxing start to the trip

As well as the parks and gardens in the town, you will find the impressive Cleeve Hill, which has the highest point in the Cotswolds. Crickley Hill also has a cafe, picnic and barbecue area, so you can enjoy food in the natural beauty around you.
