Beechwood Shopping Centre


A new shop has opened in Beechwood Shopping Centre in Cheltenham that will appeal to everyone’s pocket.

If you’ve been to Beechwood lately, you’ll notice that Gimme Gizmo has a mindboggling array of gifts and gadgets suitable for that extra fun gift or for those with hard earned pocket money to spend. The shop is on the ground floor near the centre circle.

Beechwood is also soon to welcome back a couple of seasonal favourites to complement our wide range of High Street and independent stores. Calendar Club and Cards for Good Causes will be opening, much to the delight of shoppers who year after year support the shops.

As summer fades away and autumn makes its presence felt, come and see what’s on trend in our fabulous fashion shops. Warm woolies, snug boots, elegant evening wear, casual or smart day wear – check out the latest styles and colours in the autumn/winter collections at stores including Evans, Next and Debenhams.

Even Beechwood Bear is ready to cast his summer shorts and t-shirt, so kids, make sure you catch a glimpse of him before he goes into temporary hibernation because when he returns he’ll be all set for the Christmas season.

But let’s not dwell on that just yet. There’s plenty to shop for now – new furniture, a special gift, or a treat to cheer you up.

Our balcony level has a range of independent shops that cater for all the family – Ziggy’s for children’s clothes, Edwina Edwards for gorgeous jewellery, Western Computer for everything Apple from Ipods to iMacs, GameOn for game software and accessories and Destination Skin for anti-ageing and skincare treatments.

Last but not least, for the fashion conscious there’s soon to be an even greater choice. Threadshed and Love It, run by Darren and Katherine Jeal, are combining to offer an expanded range of clothing and a wider choice of bags and accessories. The Thread Shed has now closed and is being re-fitted and re-branded as Love It.

The bigger shop will be open soon, so look out for it. You’ll love it!

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.

Undercover parking is available for 400 cars and if you’re visiting for the first time and need a little help finding us, the Sat Nav postcode to enter is GL52 2RG.
