Believe it or not, this is Royal Well. Before the modern bus shelters were installed, this is what visitors to Cheltenham were greeted with when they arrived by bus. The murals were an improvement on the old colour scheme, which was a dingy green colour. The murals were painted onto the shelter, to hide the graffiti that adorned much of the structure. The old shelter was repeatedly vandalised, so it was finally replaced with the shelters that are there today. Part of the old shelter still remains, it was used as a National Express ticket office and waiting room. Most people would say that the new shelters are an improvement because Royal Crescent is no longer obscured, I personally miss the old shelter!
