Up Hatherley is a civil parish and a suburb of the spa town of Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, England. Formerly a hamlet in the parish of Shurdington, it became a parish in 1887 and became a part of Cheltenham in 1991.
The parish was formed from a small settlement of scattered farms in 1887 and remained little changed until 1945. Along with Swindon Village, Leckhampton and Prestbury, the parish was added to the borough of Cheltenham in 1991. At this time part of the parish was transferred back to the parish of Shurdington.
