Regent Arcade


Finding a suitable gift for Father’s Day is never easy – but just one visit to the Regent Arcade could provide the solutions you’re looking for.

From cards to gadgets, clothes to leather goods you’ll find plenty of present ideas at Cheltenham’s premier retail destination with over 60 shops on two floors to choose from.

At BHS the merchandising team has already put a lot of thought into the perfect Fathers’ Day gift with ideas displayed throughout the store.

Take a look in Discovery and Red 5 for a fun gift such as a remote controlled helicopter or novelty mug or how about getting his favourite catch-phrase printed onto a T shirt at Squat::Orange?

Gifts for fashion conscious dads can be bought from River Island, Schuh, Sole or TK Maxx where you’ll also find racks of leisure clothing.

Ties and cuff links from Tie Rack are always a welcome gift, wrapped up in special Fathers Day paper and a card chosen from the excellent selection available from Clinton Cards.

If it’s retro you’re after look in Past Times or Hawkins Bazaar for gifts that will take your Dad straight back to his youth or why not give a favourite family photo in a frame from newly opened SugarLoaf?

After a well-earned coffee break at one of the Regent Arcade’s five food and drink outlets you can carry on your search in Sony or Panasonic, or perhaps pick up a mobile phone accessory from T-Mobile or a smart new wallet or briefcase from Enekes.

For aftershave and cologne there’s the Perfume Shop whilst Body Shop just a few doors down stocks a wide range of environmentally friendly male grooming and bath products.

With summer just round the corner you might consider buying him a pair of designer sunglasses from Sunglass Hut or browse in Boots, Chapmans or Ellis and Killpartrick opticians.

Jewellers David Christopher, Ernest Jones and the Regent Goldsmith have a host of special gifts to choose from, and check out Timewatch for watches and clocks to suit all budgets.

And for the man who has everything there’s always a box of delicious chocolates from Thorntons or personalised cookies from Millies!

Whatever you decide to buy for Father’s Day make sure that Regent Arcade is your first stop – you won’t be disappointed.
