Christmas

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Santa’s on his way…

Late night Christmas Shopping, until 9pm, starts on Thursday 30th November, and is then every Thursday up to and including 21st December, with free parking after 5.30pm in Regent Arcade and Town Centre East.

If you are stuck for gift ideas, then we have a few suggestions here!

The ever popular Christmas Market will also be returning this year to the iconic Promenade with an additional handmade craft fair also joining.

Cheltenham has everything you need for a daytime or weekend shopping break, so you can fill your boots with luxury shopping pit stops..  Example independent retailers in the town include luxury food suppliers on Regent Street, where you can create a bespoke, personalised hamper for the food lover in your life. Or how about a brand new pair of boots from one of the many fashion retailers? Gift Vouchers from Cheltenham Festivals will leave your friends and family to snap up tickets for guest personalities in the world of literature, jazz, science or music, or add a little something sparkly thanks to an array of local jewellers. The Brewery Quarter is the town's leisure and entertainment hub, offering over a dozen restaurants and bars; cinema, bowling, indoor golf and more on the High Street.  More hidden treasures can be found at the periphery of the town centre, in Montpellier and Suffolks shopping districts, which both play host to an exclusive range of independent retailers, and also host annual street fairs. 

Even better, for local family and friends, a brand new gift card has also been launched in Cheltenham that recipients can spend at a huge range of town centre businesses including shops, restaurants and even the theatre! For more information or to purchase a Gift Card, please visit www.cheltenhamgiftcard.co.uk.

There are also plenty of boutique hotels and stunning accommodation available to make the most of your Cheltenham break. For more information and to book your charming Cheltenham Winter Break see our accommodation listings or call our Tourist Information Centre on +44(0) 1242 237431.

We think this year sees Cheltenham's best selection of Christmas events too.  From theatre to Christmas parties, and Christmas Day lunch to a wide variety of caft and Christmas fayres, see our events listings below for information on all of the festive events in and around Cheltenham....
