A circular pub walk from The Old Courthouse, around the Regency spa town of Cheltenham in Gloucestershire. The Old Courthouse sits in the heart of the town and provides the ideal place to enjoy refreshments before or after your walk. The walking route tours the town, taking in some of the key attractions and open spaces including beautiful churches, important historic buildings, several artworks and the stunning ornamental Pittville Park, with its magnificent Pump Room and lakes. The walk is relatively flat, with only a few gentle gradients. The route follows a mixture of pedestrian thoroughfares, roadside pavements and surfaced parkland paths, making it ideal for walking in any weather. There are no stiles, kissing gates, flights of steps or livestock on route, but you will need to negotiate a few simple parkland gates and footbridges. With this in mind, the route would be suitable for pushchairs or disability buggies. Dogs are welcome throughout the route, including in the park which is a popular dog-walking spot. There are a few road crossings that need care, although many of these have pelican crossings. Allow 1.5 hours.
