Airports [Edit]

Closest airports are Bristol or Birmingham, with Heathrow a good third choice. Britain has reasonable public transport if booked well in advance. For those coming from the North of England or Scotland or Ireland a flight to Bristol or Cardiff may well be MUCH cheaper than a train.

Climate [Edit]

Cheltenham in August is typically warm, but prepare for wet weather – a rain mac is probably essential. Sad but true, and I note this for our international visitors.

Festivals [Edit]

Cheltenham is perhaps best known for its many Festivals, none of which fortunately clash with our event. Check out the website at http://www.cheltenhamfestivals.co.uk/
