Cheltenham has been a fashionable spa town for hundreds of years, and it lies on the edge of the rolling countryside of the Cotswolds, a few hour’s train journey northwest of London. Learn about the city’s history and culture at the Wilson, a fascinating museum tracing Cheltenham’s story from Roman times.

    Kids and adults alike will relish going for a dip at Sandford Parks Lido, which has a heated pool and dedicated children’s area, plus landscaped gardens with lawns where you can enjoy a picnic. There’s also a restored Art Deco café dating from 1935 when the Lido first opened.
