Arts & Culture Experiences

Discover the locations that inspired Tolkien, Carroll, Austen, Morris and more

Cheltenham is known as the cultural centre of the Cotswolds, but the inspiration doesn’t just stop there. Creativity stretches from the town, known for its Jazz, Science, Music and Literature Festivals, with independent theatres and halls across the Cotswolds showcasing the best of local talent, as well as world-wide names.

There are references to the Arts and Craft period all over the counties, and key historic landmarks to view from Broadway Tower to Sudeley Castle & Gardens. You don’t have to go on a guided tour or sit in a lecture hall to discover the culture of the Cotswolds, you simply need to look out your cottage window. That said, booking a couple theatre tickets wouldn’t be a bad idea. Here are our favourite cultural experiences.
