The Holst Birthplace Museum

Address4 Clarence Road, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, GL52 2AY

The Holst Birthplace Museum is 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, an elegant Regency drawing room and a charming Edwardian nursery. In 2010, the Holst Birthplace Museum celebrated its 35th anniversary.
