Beechwood Shopping Centre


After all the excitement of the Royal Wedding and some super weather over the Easter Bank Holiday, shoppers are turning their attention to the coming summer and Beechwood Shopping Centre’s shops are gearing up to ensure they help you enjoy great summer holidays.

Whether staying at home, exploring the delights of the British countryside or venturing abroad, our shops will have all you need to make the most of summer-essential gear such as sunglasses, sun protection products, something to keep the children occupied, luggage and of course fabulous fashions. Disney Store, Game On, Animal, Book Extra, Evans and Love It are just some of the must visit stores to get your holiday started.

Kicking off Beechwood’s summer promotions is a great competition for Father’s Day where children have the chance to win a prize for their Dad. Keep looking at our website and in the shopping centre for more details.

Dad’s big day is June 19 so there’s plenty of time to search for that special gift. Stores such as Debenhams, Next, Western Computer, Rise and Game On are full to bursting with fabulous gift ideas to suit all pockets. Authorised Apple reseller Western Computer has relocated from the Balcony to the centre circle so be sure to visit their fantastic new unit.

Of course, there’s plenty in store for everyone in the family in shops such as Jewellery Stop, Candles & More, Cargo, Thorntons and Silvermine. And if you haven’t visited the Balcony at Beechwood recently, now is the time to check out the great health and beauty offers in Garra Spa and Destination Skin, a huge range of the latest video games and consoles in Game On, ladies fashion in Love It and designer jewellery in Edwina Edwards.

Feeling exhausted with the thought of all that shopping? Don’t worry, Fresh Crust and Caffe La Scala are great places to relax over a coffee, refreshing drink or lunchtime snack. Take time out to ponder your next purchase or delight over that brilliant bargain you just snapped up and you’ll be ready for more retail therapy.

The centre is open seven days a week. There are two ATM cash machines 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.

Parking is available for 400 cars and will deliver you into the heart of the centre and with its high street location is perfect for visiting the rest of the town. If you’re visiting for the first time, the Sat Nav postcode to enter is GL52 2RG.

Beechwood has so much to offer so make sure you pay us a visit. Whether popping in during your lunch break, spending a leisurely day in Cheltenham and browsing all that this fabulous town has to offer, or coming to Beechwood to make that purchase you’ve been planning for some time, we look forward to seeing you.
