The History Of Cheltenham
Cheltenham is a spa town which is located on the edge of the Cotswolds.
It began life as an Anglo-Saxon village more than 1,000 years ago, expanding into a market town in 1226. In the early-18th century, its mineral springs were discovered and by the end of the century, it was one of the leading spas in the United Kingdom.
Cheltenham is easily accessible by road and train, and also has excellent airport links. As a result, the population has increased greatly in the last 100 years.
It is twinned with 5 cities around the world, most notably one in Pennsylvania, United States, bearing the same name.
