About Cheltenham Borough

Cheltenham is a vibrant and elegant Regency town located on the edge of the beautiful Cotswolds. It's renowned for its festivals of literature, music, science and jazz. And of course, it's home to the most prestigious jump racing event of the year, the Cheltenham Festival, culminating in the Gold Cup.

As the most complete Regency town in the UK, Cheltenham is brimming with history as well as award-winning parks and gardens and offers excellent shopping and dining experiences. It's a great place to live and work. It was voted the Best Place to Live in the South West 2020 by the Sunday Times with its education, culture and connectivity highlighted amongst its best attributes.

Cheltenham has all the attractions of a metropolitan city with easy access to some of the most stunning countryside in the country. Cheltenham has one of the strongest housing markets in the region, with places for a further 3000+ new homes in the next few years

Cheltenham’s key growth sector is cyber, and the relationship with GCHQ puts Cheltenham in a unique position to drive our ambition to become the UK’s cyber capital. Plans for a new campus and cyber-tech community, Cyber Central are now accelerating under the leadership of Cheltenham Borough Council following the £37.5m purchase of the land on which the site will be developed. This is regarded as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, creating a world-leading cyber-tech hub with the associated economic and social benefits this will bring for the town, the surrounding region and UK plc.
