Town and city breaks in Warwickshire
A visit to Stratford-upon-Avon is essential when staying in a hotel in Warwickshire. Explore the small swan-adorned town that nurtured and influenced the foremost playwright and author of the English-speaking world. You can even visit his classic half-timbered house where he was brought up, as well as Anne Hathaway's Cottage and Mary Arden's House, the farm on which his mother was born. Head to Waterside to see his words come to life at three RSC theatres. The glorious countryside is dotted with picturesque market towns and villages that belong in an earlier age, sporting thatched roofs and timbered architecture. Atherston, Mancetter, Dunchurch, Alcester, Bidford-on-Avon and Royal Leamington Spa are some of the finest coach towns, market towns and grander, Georgian towns that should be visited on a day out from your Warwickshire hotel. The county town, Warwick, is steeped in history and boasts a number of impressive buildings, secret gardens, antique shops and boutiques as well as several great Markets, including the famous Charter Market. Warwick Castle, a magical structure, will make you jump out of your skin at the Dungeons After Dark experience.
Holidays in the Warwickshire countryside
As well as numerous splendid stately homes and country estates, booking a hotel in Warwickshire countryside will give you quick access to a large number of country walks and treks. Starting in Lapworth will allow you to take in a 3-mile or 7-mile circle walk that links several National Trust properties; or, the Three Churches Walk, between the villages of Berkswell, Eastern Green and Meriden, lets you see some of the small Warwickshire communities that exist quietly amongst the surrounding greenery. Within easy striking distance of your Warwickshire hotel you can cycle along the now defunct railway branch line from Berkswell to Kenilworth Junction, where her Majesty the Queen used to park her royal train before heading into Coventry. It is now a haven for wildlife. For a different perspective, hire a power boat at Kingsbury Water Park. Four canals slice through the county, once the veins of Warwickshire's industrial might, now serving as the support and backbone for even more beautiful country walkways.
Attractions in Warwickshire
Apart from the variety of Shakespeare-related entertainment that can be found in the county of his birth, staying in a hotel in Warwickshire will give you access to so many other attractions. Cultivate your green fingers with a trip to Leamington Spa's Temperate House at Jephson Gardens which details plant evolution over the past 500-million years. During your Warwickshire hotel stay, wet your whistle at Studley, a town whose claims to fame include having the second-highest number of pubs per capita in England, with a respectable 17 per square mile. For a family day out, visit Kenilworth Castle, described by historian Anthony Emery as 'the finest surviving example of a semi-royal palace of the later middle ages.'
