Cheltenham has joined a growing number of towns and cities on the Discover App – a fantastic resource for visitors and residents.

The free app, available on all smartphones, gives users access to personalised information on shopping, eating, drinking, staying and enjoying themselves in our Regency town – all at their fingertips!

Brought to the town by Cheltenham BID and Visit Cheltenham (part of Cheltenham Borough Council) to encourage visitors and residents to shop, eat, and stay locally.

What is the ‘Discover App?

We won’t walk your dog for you, but we’ll show you where to walk him… we can’t buy you a drink, but we can show you where to go for a tasty barista coffee, we can’t physically take you to dinner, but we can show you where to find that stone-baked pizza you’ve been craving and we can do ALL of this based on your preferences!

Care to elaborate…?

We’re essentially a ‘whole of place’ app which means we will showcase everything there is to shop, eat and do in a place. We will show you where to get the coffee you’ve been craving or which gym to go to for that early morning workout. We guide you through Cheltenham, pointing out all its hidden gems and taking you to places we know you love. Not only do we do this, but we also show you offers & promotions from local businesses. The Discover App will be there with you the whole way, guiding you through everywhere to shop, eat, do & discover.

Is the Discover App easy to use?

YES! Minimal effort is required, all content on Discover is only a couple of taps away.

How does Discover know what I want?

When you sign up to our nifty app, we’ll ask you for your preferences. This is where you tell us that you’re a coffee loving vegan, a fan of hair and beauty… or that you’re obsessed with country music (we don’t judge!).

If your tastes change, you can quickly change your preferences through the app settings.

Do I have to pay to use the app?

Nope, it’s free!

I have a business in the area, can I sign up?

The Discover App team love hearing from businesses! If you run a business in the Cheltenham area and would like to find out if you’re eligible to be included on the app, pop them an email at
