Montpellier is a district of Cheltenham, Gloucestershire (England), at the end of the Promenade south of the town centre. Originally developed in the 1830s in conjunction with the spas, it is now known for its bars, cafés, restaurants and range of specialist shops. In April 2008 Montpellier was one of the most expensive areas in Cheltenham to buy property, with apartments ranging from £300,000 to over £1,000,000, townhouses from around £400,000, and houses over £4,000,000.
Montpellier Spa was initiated by Henry Thompson after springs were discovered on land he bought in 1801. The Spa buildings of 1817 were by George Allen Underwood. Thompson's son Pearson extensively developed the area and arranged for supporting entertainment for the spa facilities. He commissioned the distinctive Rotunda by John Buonarotti Papworth as a pump room in 1825. This was a branch of Lloyds Bank, but is now a part of The Ivy restaurant chain. Opposite are "Montpellier Gardens", also laid out by Papworth. The architects and developers R. W. and C. Jearrad took over the running of Montpellier Spa from Thompson in 1830. Montpellier Walk, leading to Montpellier Spa and designed by W. H. Knight in 1840, is noted for the caryatids supporting the shop fronts.

Beautiful open space to enjoy time away from bustling town centre. No gardens as such anymore but lovely wide green space amongst mature trees. Skate park is tucked away so not to disturb others too much. Art gallery and cafe are really good quality and well worth inspection. Band stand and host to several local arts music and lit fests throughout the year.

Nice food. Lovely setting. The risotto starter was a very generous portion. The duck for main seemed a smaller portion than the starter and was a tad on the over done side for my liking... but that's a personal preference. All in all a decent meal and service.

My favourite park in Cheltenham. Plenty of space, play parks for children, an art gallery and a great cafe.

The beauty of the flowers, lawns, trees and the layout together an indication of how much the gardeners love their work and nature.

Randy Crawford live in Cheltenham, still jazzing it up. Fantastic performance from a legendary artist.

This garden/park is great. It is somewhere to stop and relax for a while just to appreciate how nice parts of Cheltenham are. Of course I am bias because this is where the fair always stopped and we used to show off by shooting all the targets when they still used what looked like live rounds as opposed to an air rifle with pellets. There is a toilet block here if you get stuck short and even some outdoor tennis courts if you are in the mood. The buildings around are all regency style and it is a comfortable place to just relax and chill out for a while.

Nice relaxing park. If any events are on they tend to be here

Beautiful park - perhaps more functional than pure beauty but acts as a real focal point for so many excellent events in Cheltenham including the Jazz and Food & drink festivals. Always in regular use, great for families whether knocking a ball around or having a picnic. There is a cafe and a lovely restaurant. There are also public tennis courts that can be booked for a very affordable fee.

Tidy, friendly atmosphere and a good place for a picnic with some friends or the family. There is nearly always something going on weather that's an open art gallery, tennis, dogs playing together, festivals, and even the occasional break-dancing. Great place for a sit down whilst enjoy Cheltenham on a sunny day.

Really enjoyed the Cheltenham food festival this year lots of local artisanal merchants, and loads of wonderful ready to eat stalls. Beer as always on tap and delicious from local breweries. Would recommend!

Went to jazz festival had a fun day. Not enough toilets on the day. Although normal day the toilet block is sufficient. Clean and tidy.
