Cheltenham and Christmas walking tour with free drink: Tis the season to be jolly knowledgeable about both Cheltenham and Christmas. Enjoy a 90-minute tour of Cheltonian Christmas stories and discover more about many Christmas customs:
- How Cheltenham’s favourite royal gave us the Christmas tree.
- Which Cheltenham-born musician wrote a top Yule tune
- Why the first skating rink shocked the town.
- What famous clock chimes with season's greetings.
- Free cup of tea after the tour!
The tour also explains Christmas customs, from Advent to Yule logs; the three Cs - Cards, Carols and Crackers; Mince pies, Mistletoe and Mulled wine and the Ts: Thanksgiving, Turkey and Twelfth Night. Finish with another 'T': a free cup of tea at the atmospheric Memsahib Gin and Tea Bar on the Promenade, and a chance to catch your breath or have lunch before you explore the new Christmas market.
The tour is COVID compliant and we go out of our way to make sure you get all the fun facts, without jargon and heavy history lessons.
Children and well-behaved pets are welcome.
The tour starts at 11am from outside the Queens Hotel on the Promenade.
Around Cheltenham is run by Steve Roth and Sean Callery. We are qualified Blue Badge guides (the top standard for tourist guides) and will take you on action-packed journeys from Cheltenham’s beginnings as a one street town to Regency playground for the rich and famous.
Duelling, glamour, scandal, Lord Byron Jane Austen: they all take a bow in this tale of Bridgerton in the Cotswolds.
We also work with Colleagues from the Gloucestershire and Cotswold Tourist Guides Association to offer Saturday walks of Regency Cheltenham.
If you are using Cheltenham as your base, we can also show you the Cotswolds’ nearby attractions. Contact us to find out more or get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
