Finding us using a sat nav can be a headache, people are often directed to a different road entirely. There are two companies involved in the UK that pinpoint places on the sat nav digital maps. One of these companies is TomTom who now have the correct information. The other company is Navteq, this company provides the maps for Garmin, Nokia to name a few and it is these sat nav maps that are the worst, however we are trying our hardest to get them to put our post code in the correct place. We would strongly advise you use the post code for The Cheltenham Ladies College GL50 3EP, this is located 40 meters away in the same road.
Directions from London by Car – 100 miles: M4 to junction 15 (signposted Swindon) follow the dual carriageway A419 and turns into A417 follow all the way non-stop to the Air balloon pub at the Birdlip roundabout , take 2nd exit and immediately turn Left, follow the scenic road (with wonderful views) to Cheltenham. at the first roundabout go straight over, follow the road until you come to a set of traffic lights next to Eagle Tower, turn left then follow this road to the next roundabout, take the second exit then follow the road that comes back on itself and take the fourth exit left. Follow this road until the mini roundabout then turn right into Bayshill Road and we are 200 meters down on the right hand side
Parking: As we are located in the centre of Cheltenham onsite parking is limited, however, there are plenty of pay and display parking spaces close to the property. Cheltenham is secure, although we recommend valuables and bags are either removed from your vehicle or placed out of view in the boot. On your arrival, we can inform you where best to park.
