Cheltenham Shopping

Cheltenham is a popular regional shopping centre, home to several department stores, including Cavendish House, part of the House of Fraser chain, and arcades including the Regent Arcade and the Beechwood Arcade. The old Flowers brewery site has recently been converted into a leisure quarter, "The Brewery", with gym, multiplex cinema, bingo and numerous restaurants and bars. Although not noted nationally for its nightlife, the town also serves as a regional nightlife centre, attracting up to 30,000 people at the weekends (council figures). When the new licensing laws were introduced, The Times ran an article that stated Cheltenham had more late licensed venues per capita, than anywhere else in the country.

Cavendish House

Cavendish House is Cheltenham's oldest and leading department store (established 1826), located on The Promenade. Its establishment was of great significance for Cheltenham's future reputation as a leading shopping centre. Known as 'Cavendish House' from its early days, the name was officially adopted in 1883. The store became part of the House of Fraser group in 1969.

Regent Arcade

Regent Arcade in Cheltenham was opened 1985 by Princess Anne. It cost £23 million pounds and 2 years to build between 1982 and 1984. It is situated in the busiest part of Cheltenham's High Street with a side entrance on Regent Street. It was Cheltenham's first shopping centre and is still the biggest in the town.

Although Beechwood Arcade is the smaller of Cheltenham's two such arcades, it is just as popular, with a wide range of fine shops and plenty of places where you may sit with a coffee and watch the world go by.
