It feels like going back in time when you step inside the Regency terrace house where Gustav Holst, composer of The Planets was born in 1874.


Cheltenham's Historic House

A fascinating insight into the life of a great composer on four floors of period rooms.

Step inside and see the piano Holst used to compose The Planets. Discover how he developed into a world-class composer. Experience what life was like life 'above and below stairs' for his family through Regency and Victorian period rooms. Imagine yourself as a Victorian child, playing in the nursery. Lose yourself as you listen to the opening bars of Mars...

The museum has a lively events programme including children's activities. There are also regular 'Bake Back in Time' events held in the Victorian kitchen where visitors can sample a range of vintage cakes and bakes.
