CHELTENHAM /ˈtʃɛltnəm/ , also known as CHELTENHAM SPA, is a regency spa town and borough which is located on the edge of the Cotswolds , an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Gloucestershire
Gloucestershire
, England. With a motto of Salubritas et Eruditio meaning 'health and education', Cheltenham
Cheltenham
has been a health and holiday spa town resort since the discovery of mineral springs in 1716 and has a high number of internationally renowned and historic schools.

The list of festivals includes: the Cheltenham Literature Festival , the Cheltenham Jazz Festival , the Cheltenham Science Festival , the Cheltenham Music Festival , the Cheltenham

Cheltenham
Cheltenham
stands on the small River Chelt , which rises nearby at Dowdeswell and runs through the town on its way to the Severn . It was first recorded in 803, as Celtan hom; the meaning has not been resolved with certainty, but latest scholarship concludes that the first element preserves a pre-British noun cilta, 'steep hill', here referring to the Cotswold scarp; the second element may mean 'settlement' or 'water-meadow'. As a royal manor, it features in the earliest pages of the Gloucestershire
Gloucestershire
section of Domesday Book
Domesday Book
where it is named Chintenha. The town was awarded a market charter in 1226.

Though little remains of its pre-spa history, Cheltenham
Cheltenham
has been a health and holiday spa town resort since the discovery of mineral springs there in 1716. Captain Henry Skillicorne (1678–1763), is credited with being the first entrepreneur to recognise the opportunity to exploit the mineral springs. The retired "master mariner" became co-owner of the property containing Cheltenham's first mineral spring upon his 1732 marriage to Elizabeth Mason. Her father, William Mason, had done little in his lifetime to promote the healing properties of the mineral water apart from limited advertising and building a small enclosure over the spring. Skillicorne's wide travels as a merchant had prepared him to see the potential lying dormant on this inherited property. After moving to Cheltenham
Cheltenham
in 1738, he immediately began improvements intended to attract visitors to his spa. He built a pump to regulate the flow of water and erected an elaborate well-house complete with a ballroom and upstairs billiard room to entertain his customers. The beginnings of Cheltenham's famous tree-lined promenades and gardens surrounding its spas were first designed by Captain Skillicorne with the help of "wealthy and traveled" friends who understood the value of relaxing avenues. The beautiful walks and gardens were naturally adorned with sweeping vistas of the countryside. Soon the gentry and nobility from across the county were enticed to come and investigate the beneficial waters of Cheltenham's market town spa.

The visit of George III with the queen and royal princesses in 1788 set a stamp of fashion on the spa. The spa waters can still be sampled at the Pittville Pump Room , built for this purpose and completed in 1830; it is a centrepiece of Pittville , a planned extension of Cheltenham
Cheltenham
to the north, undertaken by Joseph Pitt , who laid the first stone 4 May 1825.

Cheltenham's success as a spa town is reflected in the railway station, which is still called Cheltenham
Cheltenham
Spa , and spa facilities in other towns that were inspired by or named after it.

Alice Liddell and Lewis Carroll

, published in 1871.

Horse racing began in Cheltenham
Cheltenham
in 1815, and became a major national attraction after the establishment of the Festival in 1902. Whilst the volume of tourists visiting the spa has declined, the racecourse attracts tens of thousands of visitors to each day of the festival each year, with such large numbers of visitors having a significant impact on the town.

In the Second World War
Second World War
, the United States Army Service of Supply, European Theatre of Operations established its primary headquarters at Cheltenham
Cheltenham
under the direction of Lt. Gen. John C. H. Lee , with the flats of the Cheltenham Racecourse becoming a giant storage depot for countless trucks, jeeps, tanks and artillery pieces. Most of this materiel was reshipped to the continent for and after the D-Day invasion . Lee and his primary staff had offices and took residence at Thirlestaine Hall in Cheltenham.

On 1 April 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972

Lansdown Crescent is a Regency period terrace , designed by John Buonarotti Papworth for R.W. and C. Jearrad and constructed in the 1830s. The terrace is convex, and opposite the north-eastern part stands LANSDOWN COURT, an Italianate villa possibly designed by Papworth but more probably by the Jearrads and built about 1830. Charlton Park

Charlton Park is a former 72-acre (29 ha) historic park with mansion house, about a mile south-east of the town centre. From 1935 the parkland gradually became a private residential area, the main housing development taking place between 1976 and 1983. The original mansion house dated from the 13th century; alterations throughout the centuries transformed it from a medieval, timber-framed hall-house into an 18th-century brick-faced mansion in the classical style. In the 1780s the estate was emparked for deer and had magnificent Dutch-style water gardens. After 1935 the old house became part of Charlton Park Convent, and since 1987 has been part of St Edward\'s School .
