In January 2018, the team worked with journalist Emily from Period Living Magazine, providing information on visiting Cheltenham as part of their ‘Out and About’ feature, which highlights a particular town or area for its heritage. The feature includes places of historic interest, as well as details on where to stay, shop, eat, things to do, events through the year and anything else of interest.
The feature, which is in the April Issue, was published at the end of February 2018, saw Marketing Cheltenham put together a recommended itinerary for Emily, as well as facilitating her stay at No.38 The Park and dinner at 131 The Promenade.
As part of her visit to Cheltenham in January, Emily took in the sights with a programme of self-exploration, including many of our recommendations. The feature included an excellent overview of the Town and our history, and also listed a number of Marketing Cheltenham members and Cheltenham businesses including:
- places to stay: No 38 The Park, Crossways B&B and The Bradley Hotel
- where to eat: Purslane, 131 The Promenade and Petit Coco
- where to shop: Atelier 19, Kitchener, Rechercher, Olive, The Guild at 51 and Rosa Blue
as well as of course all the heritage architecture and historical sites on offer in our town. The feature also included a pull-out about Sudeley Castle and Gardens, with Cheltenham heralded as the perfect place for your base to explore the wider area.
We’re knew the feature wouldn’t possibly be able to squeeze everything in, but Marketing Cheltenham is proud to have recommended over 70 local businesses, and we know Emily found some of her own hidden gems too along the way! In her feedback, Emily confirmed “Had a lovely stay, thanks so much again for organising.”
A huge thank you to all the members, businesses and individuals who help make these trips so fantastic!
As a result:
The feature was 3 pages long in the April edition of the Magazine which went on sale at the end of February. Pop into shops and grab your copy or ask us if you can see the feature…
