Cheltenham Attractions

Cheltenham's major exciting new attraction is The Wilson - Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum, which opened to the public on 5 October 2013.  This elegant and stylish building, designed by architects Berman Guedes Stretton, has something for everybody, whether they are local to the area, or coming to Cheltenham for the first time.  With a gallery dedicated to their extensive fine art collection, a space to  discover more about local heroes - including Cheltenham born Edward Wilson (one of Scott's key men on his 1912 expedition to Antarctica), a re-interpreted Arts and Crafts gallery and two superb temporary exhibition galleries for showing national and international touring shows - this is an attraction not to be missed.

Another important Cheltenham born son is Holst, composer of 'The Planets'.  His birthplace can be found in Clarence Road on the north side of the town - 2014 was a year of celebration with 100 years since Holst composed his most famous musical score.

If you are interested in the sporting history of the racecourse, wander through the Hall of Fame at Cheltenham Racecourse, or if you want to take in more art in a variety of locations, try The Gardens Gallery in Montpellier Gardens, Whitewall Gallery at the back of Cavendish House on the Promenade, or Castle Fine Art nearby.  There are also smaller galleries within the town to enjoy, or even buy a picture to suit your taste.
