Prestbury is a medium sized village near the edge of the Cotswolds. It is on the outskirts of the larger town, Cheltenham, and forms part of the borough of Cheltenham, despite retaining its own parish council as a civil parish. It is part of the Tewkesbury parliamentary constituency, represented by Laurence Robertson MP of the Conservative Party. It gives residents and visitors alike the opportunity to go to a more urban centre of shopping and recreation, or enjoy the surrounding countryside.

The village is famous for being the most haunted in England, including the Headless Horseman who rides down The Burgage, and The White Lady, the Black Abbot who roam the local churchyard, and a ghostly cavalier being the most frequently seen. Others include a whole funeral procession and even a troop of ghostly soldiers, as well as several poterguists.

There is a Carvery called the Kings Arms, which used to be the village's main pub. It was here that Fred Archer grew up, as his father was a landlord of the pub.
