The latest title in Amberley's exciting A-Z series is a fascinating window into Cheltenham’s rich history. Full colour, bringing history and memories to life.
Cheltenham was a small Gloucestershire market town until becoming a major spa town following the discovery of mineral springs in the area in the early 18th century. It soon became a fashionable and popular resort and the town was transformed by the building of elegant buildings, gardens and avenues. Although visitors continue to sample the spa waters and admire the town’s Regency buildings, Cheltenham has many other aspects of interest that attracts visitors to the town, not least horse-racing’s famous Cheltenham Festival, as well other literary, musical and cultural festivals, and it also known as the location of the British Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), its offices nicknamed ‘The Doughnut’ because of their distinctive shape.
A-Z of Cheltenham reveals the stories behind the town of Cheltenham, its streets, buildings and people. All aspects of Cheltenham’s history through the centuries are included and it brings to life the story of how its residents and visitors have shaped the city of today. This fascinating A-Z tour of Cheltenham’s history is fully illustrated with photography and will appeal to all those with an interest in this distinctive town.
