The Broadwalk

England GL52 2AY, United Kingdom

Created By: Cheltenham Local History Society


The Sherborne, or Imperial Spa, (now the site of the Queen’s Hotel) opened in 1817 at the western end of Richard Ware’s newly established Broad Walk which was covered by an extensive arbour. The Broad Walk led eastwards to a small pavilion which in 1826 housed a late 18th century Italian marble fountain - see Sight 8.

In the 1840s the original Broad Walk disappeared beneath the Queen's Hotel's extensive stables and garages. In 1995 these were replaced by the neo-Regency terrace to the left of the Queen's Hotel, again named The Broadwalk.
