Feel the electrifying buzz of Cheltenham’s sporting events

Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

A visit to a spring race meet in the Cotswolds countryside is an exhilarating experience.

With three spring race meets to choose from, including The Festival and culminating in Gold Cup Day, Cheltenham is a great destination for sporting events.

An adrenalin-fuelled day experiencing the form of the race horses, placing bets and eagerly awaiting the outcome is followed by a warm welcome to race-goers from the town’s businesses.

With large numbers thronging the Regency streets every year, Cheltenham’s experienced tourist venues ensure a post-race festival atmosphere is enjoyed by all.

Afterwards, you can enjoy a soothing stay at one of Cheltenham’s finest hotels, Ellenborough Park. Located on the outskirts of Cheltenham, this luxurious manor house offers boutique bedrooms and heaps of country house style.
