The Suffolks, the area of town around Suffolk Square, is where individual boutiques mix happily with cafes, and specialist craft establishments. The Suffolks is a very popular centre for antiques. The shops are many and varied with some specialising in certain fields of the antique market. Add to it charming mid-19th century terraces of Suffolks Square with its central bowling green, and you get one of the most attractive parts of Cheltenham.
Suffolks also offers numerous opportunities to dine out in style. The Regency Gothic St. James Church in Suffolk Parade was converted to a restaurant and so was The Daffodil, one of Cheltenham's early cinemas.
