Bespoke kitchen design for Cheltenham’s period houses provides enormous inspiration for our design team. Cheltenham also known as Cheltenham Spa, and sometimes called “the Garden Town of England” is a town in Gloucestershire, on the edge of the Cotswolds. The Pittville Pump Room, is a remnant of Cheltenham’s past as a spa town.
It was voted the Best Place to Live in the South West by The Sunday Times with its education, culture and connectivity highlighted amongst its best attributes.
The town is known for its Regency architecture and is said to be “the most complete regency town in England”. Many of the buildings are listed, including the Cheltenham Synagogue, judged by Nikolaus Pevsner to be one of the architecturally best non-Anglican ecclesiastical buildings in Britain.
Regency architecture encompasses classical buildings built in the United Kingdom during the Regency era in the early 19th century when George IV was Prince Regent, and also to earlier and later buildings following the same style.
There is also a fine art gallery at The Wilson museum, and the Victorian Everyman Theatre has an ornate auditorium. As the most complete Regency town in Britain with a population of just 117,000, Cheltenham is intimate and friendly, a civilised place of culture, learning and discovery.
In 2014, a piece of graffiti art by street artist Banksy appeared next to a telephone box in a residential street in Cheltenham. The graffiti depicted three men in trench coats and dark glasses apparently listening in to calls made in the telephone box.
Every year, Cheltenham Festivals organises music, jazz, literature and science festivals in the town, attracting names with national and international reputations in each field. Events take place at venues including the town hall, the Everyman Theatre, the Playhouse Theatre and the Pittville Pump Room.
