01242 Area Code - Cheltenham

The 01242 area code is used for Cheltenham (County of Gloucestershire) and the areas directly surrounding Cheltenham, which includes 9 distinct locations. Most 01242 numbers are used for landlines. However, they can also be purchased by companies or organizations to be used for services that don’t have any connection to the Cheltenham area.

Previously, the area used 0242 as their area code. This changed in April 1995 during the phONEday event, where it was changed to the 01242 area code to accommodate the growing population and supplement the shrinking supply of phone numbers in Gloucestershire.
