Go crazy in Cheltenham, cultural and hen capital of the Cotswolds. Serve your cocktails from teapots in the Frog and Fiddle. Throw shapes at 13 Degrees. Try Montpellier for chic Euro wine bars and pavement dining: pop a cork or two and soak up the Regency brickwork. The crazy cocktailery continues on Regent Street.
Best bites include Prithvi, Lumiere and L’Artisan. Keep everyone entertained with a cocktail masterclass, dancing lessons or picnicking with llamas. Face your fears on the high ropes or make with the eggs-and-spoons on a school sports day. Festivals? Come in March for the racing, May for Wychwood or September for the comedy.
