While visiting the Town Centre of Cheltenham on Thursday 25/08/16 I decided to take a look through the REGENT ARCADE, on returning to England every 2 years from Sydney Australia I must say the Arcade isn't what it once was from the early days of opening [sorry can't quite remember the year the Arcade opened]. It's a mix of low... More

Bright clean and well organised shopping mall, on two levels. The Regent Arcade is bang in the middle of the main shopping area and connects the Upmarket clothes shops on the Promenade to the busy / shared traffic area of the High Steet. Lots of interesting and some quite unusual retail outlets, many of which are not the general chain... More

The Arcade is the most central of Cheltenham's shopping malls. The arcade was okay, but was getting a bit tired and some units had closed. Over the last year, the mall has been refurbished with a number of new shops and restaurants. The mall has gone from okay to, well, really pretty good. Best mall in Cheltenham.

Regent Arcade Shopping Centre has been a real breath of fresh air with incredible Independent and quirky shops combined with the traditional Highstreet chain stores. T K Maxx is a real delight as was the Danish Tiger store with its range of outlandish, vibrant-coloured unnecessary things which everyone must own! The venue is covered and is extensive. There is a... More

Same old high street shops, needs some 'different' independent shops, which would allow Regent Arcade to stand out! Clean, light, friendly atmosphere, but needs more! Kids love the 'bubble' clock :)

This arcade is situated off the high street in the town's main shopping thoroughfare. There are a few shops, but none that are 'must visit'. At least you stay dry on a wet day.

An interesting diversity of shops. Clothes, shoes, gifts, jewellery confectionery, greetings cards, opticians, too many to mention, and a patisserie to eat and relax in after the delights of browsing and purchasing.
