The Cheltenham Paint Festival may be over for another year however you can experience the street art created by the talented artists last week year round. 

Check out a few of our highlights from this year and previous years Cheltenham Paint Festival in our video below...   

With the weather forecast looking fabulous this weekend (23 degrees on Sunday!) we thoroughly recommend you explore the various street art locations on foot or on bike.  You can download the 4 mile (6k) route map here or pick up a map from The Wilson Art Gallery & Museum. (Or any venues in town that have the glide media leaflet display stands).  

A good starting point is the Honeybourne Line, with art to enjoy on the bridges and in the tunnels.  From here we recommend you pop along to Queens Road (wall next to Popeyes by the Tesco Metro opposite the Train Station).  If you are feeling up for a good walk from here you divert to the two incredible murals on Princess Elizabeth Way by Dan Kitchener (aka Dank) and Inkie.  If you would prefer a shorter route walk into town to seek out the famous scene by Hamlet ('To be or not to be...') created by Zabou on the Premier Inn side of the Brewery Quarter, the vivid lady with fox by Faungraphic and Rocket01 on St Georges Street and a huge cat by Curtis Hylton (aka Samer) on Albion Street (sponsored by Cheltenham BID). 

From here make sure you pop across the street from The Brewery Quarter to North Place car park where there are numerous scenes by talented artists from around the world. 

Enjoy exploring!
