Beechwood Shopping Centre


Step into Beechwood Shopping Centre this summer for some great shopping – the perfect place for that holiday wardrobe. Check out what’s hot in our fashion stores.

Add style to your garden or home with furniture from Oceans Home & Garden and Cargo, or ladies, if you want to give yourself a boost, visit Destination Skin for a passport to the new you. Visit our newest store Gimme Gizmo which is crammed with a whole range of crazy gift ideas.

Beechwood aims to make your visit an enjoyable one with a host of activities planned for the children. August 14 will see the return of our prize grab inflatable cube. It’s free and fun and there’s a prize every time, plus some extra special prizes up for grabs throughout the day.

Join us on August 23 for a fantastic funfair day with so much to see and do. There will be a Punch & Judy show, bouncy castle, carnival games, balloon animals and facepainting, and it’s all free for you to enjoy.

If the weather is a little too hot, why not have a cool drink at Café Giardino or an ice cream from Caffé La Scala, Fresh Crust or Thorntons.

Whether you’re planning a leisurely shop, want to stop for a coffee or lunch break, or looking for free fun entertainment while out with the family, make Beechwood Shopping Centre your first port of call.
Entrance to the CCTV covered shopping centre is from the High Street on foot or via Albion Street to the car park which has the Park Mark safer parking accreditation.

Beechwood’s two levels are linked by escalator, lifts and scenic lift. There are two ATM cash machines located on the balcony level and car park level 2a, which are free to use, and a Shopmobility scheme run by Cheltenham Borough Council. This is easily accessible by car and is located on level 1a of the car park.

Public and disabled toilets and a parent room are available on the first floor near the lifts with an additional parent room/disabled toilet on the ground floor.

And if you’re travelling to Beechwood by car, the centre’s Severn Valet service will give your car a spruce up while you shop.

Customers will find the wash n’ go service on level 2a of the car park. Designated bays have been set aside where fully trained and uniformed staff provide a variety of options from a basic wash to a total car protection service.

Beechwood Shopping Centre has chosen the National Star College as its nominated charity for 2010.

Fundraising from events held at the centre throughout the year will be donated to the Cheltenham-based charity which helps young disabled people discover their potential and prepare for adult life.
