The station was situated on the main Birmingham to Bristol railway line, to the south of the bridge where the line passes beneath Tewkesbury Road in Cheltenham, which is a continuation of, but quite remote from that known as the High Street.
It was opened on 1 September 1862 as Cheltenham Tewkesbury Road Bridge, and a month later, on 1 October, was renamed Cheltenham High Street.
The Midland and South Western Junction Railway (MSWJ) had reached Cirencester in 1883. On 1 August 1891 the MSWJ opened an extension from Cirencester to Andoversford, which connected with the existing Banbury and Cheltenham Direct Railway; the MSWJ obtained permission to use that line to reach Cheltenham. The MSWJ passenger trains ran to Cheltenham (Lansdown), whereas the goods trains continued a little further north, to Cheltenham High Street. The MSWJ built a locomotive depot adjacent to High Street station.
The station closed to passengers on 1 July 1910. The line remains open for passenger services between Birmingham New Street and Cheltenham Spa, but these do not call at Cheltenham High Street.
From 1909 until closure the station was managed by the station master at Lansdown Road)
