What do I need to know before retiring in Cheltenham?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Cheltenham, they said...

"Before retiring in Cheltenham, expats should know that the town is known for its regency architecture and is considered one of the most complete regency towns in the UK. Expats should be aware that the cost of living in Chelham is higher than the national average, particularly when it comes to housing. It's important to know that Cheltenham is a cultural hub, hosting several festivals throughout the year, including the Cheltenham Literature Festival, Cheltenham Jazz Festival, and the Cheltenham Science Festival. Expats should understand that the healthcare system in the UK is publicly funded, and they will have access to the National Health Service (NHS), although private healthcare is also available. They should also be aware that Cheltenham is well-connected to other parts of the UK, with good rail and road links, making it easy to explore the rest of the country. Expats should know that the weather in Cheltenham is relatively mild, with warm summers and cool winters, but it can be quite rainy throughout the year. They should also be aware that Cheltenham is a safe town with a low crime rate, but like anywhere, it's important to take common-sense precautions. Before retiring in Cheltenham, expats should also understand the UK's tax system, as they may be liable to pay tax on their worldwide income, depending on their residency status. Finally, expats should know that Cheltenham has a range of leisure facilities, including parks, theatres, and sports centres, as well as a wide variety of shops and restaurants," explained one expat living in Cheltenham, England.
