Overview

Regent Arcade Shopping Centre is the Cotswolds' premier shopping destination. Set in the heart of Cheltenham and conveniently positioned to link the High Street with The Promenade, the Arcade boasts an impressive line-up of over 60 retail stores and dining options all under one roof. Here you can find top fashion retailers H&M, Topshop/Topman, TK Maxx and Apricot, as well as a host of other favourites including HMV, Pandora, Skechers, Schuh and so much more! Why not stop for coffee at SOHO Coffee Co., grab a pretzel from Auntie Anne's or relax over lunch at Carluccio's and stay a while? Home to Kit William’s iconic Wishing Fish Clock since Regent Arcade’s opening in 1985, the world’s largest mechanical clock has enchanted generations of children by blowing bubbles and playing its familiar signature tune on the hour and half hour. From big-name fashion giants, to unique independent stores, and everything in between, you’ll find everything you’re looking for at Regent Arcade.

Sited next to the Everyman Theatre it's easy to find. It is an arcade with an interesting clock but is relatively small by today's shopping standards. The upper level only really houses the flyover to House of Fraser. The cafe sited in the bridge section...More

Haven't been to Cheltenham for ages and parked in the shopping centre car park. It's the most confusing car park ever. You also have to be careful not to park on level 2 if you can't do stairs as the lift goes to level 1....More

Nothing to get excited about really. The standard shop fare though the interior was bright & airy and we did like the Xmas decorations. The clock was huge and we enjoyed reading about its renovation. That was the centre's only saving grace.

Nice little shopping mall set in the high street, Usual shops and coffee outlets. The Clock that blows bubbles out of the fishes mouth on the hour is like something from Willy Wonker, Fantastic.

We love seeing the fish when in town. The arcade has a great selection on shops the only down side is the toilets. Often we find wet floors or queues

This shopping centre has improved significantly since we first moved to Cheltenham (it certainly needed to!) and now has a reasonable variety of shops, restaurants, etc. It is kept spotlessly clean and well policed by the staff (for which I have awarded an extra star)...More

Most of these city shopping centres are pretty much the same, however I did like the Wishing Fish Clock at the Regent which is quite unique.

Regents arcade is right in the middle of Cheltenham and has a good variety of shops. However the car park is tricky to find. It's confusing as there is a number plate recognition system. You pay when leaving popping in your reg plate. It's expensive...More
