For four days every March in Cheltenham, half of Ireland and thousands more descend upon Cheltenham for the National Hunt Festival. Hosted at Cheltenham Racecourse, the town of Cheltenham evolves into a frenzied mix of Guinness and betting slips in a unique party atmosphere.
Even for those who arent particularly interested in horse-racing will be thrilled by a day at the races, where you will experience passion, excitement and the famous 'Cheltenham Roar' as the horses gallop towards the finishing post. The festival also coincides with St Patricks Day, when the town gets painted in Irish colours and hosts a party to remember across the numerous Irish bars and beyond.
So experience the races at Cheltenham, The Cotswolds, and maybe you'll take back more than you came with!
