Attraction in Cheltenham
Cheltenham's musical gem - the Regency terrace house where Gustav Holst, composer of 'The Planets', was born in 1874. The story of the man and his music is told alongside a fascinating display of personal belongings, including his piano. The museum is also a fine period house showing the 'upstairs-downstairs' way of life in times past, including a working Victorian kitchen and laundry, elegant Regency drawing room and charming Edwardian nursery.
Children's discovery trails and toys to try. Holst's music played. Special events throughout the year. Guided Tours by arrangement.
