Warwickshire, with its grand country mansions, striking medieval landmarks and picture-perfect historic towns and villages, is just the ticket for couples looking for an unforgettable romantic getaway.
Stay In a Romantic Hotel near Warwick Castle
This majestic Norman castle became an exclusive mansion by the 17th Century, and has many fascinating exhibitions illustrating the town's profound medieval heritage and the Norman influence on England. Warwick is also home to picturesque St. Nicholas' Park, the Mill Garden and Hill Close Gardens, and is also noted for its striking 11th century Collegiate Church of St. Mary. All of these make a wonderfully picturesque backdrop for a getaway with someone special. The town also has plenty of restaurants and historic inns, and a great range of romantic hotels that are perfect for romantic escapes.
Shakespeare – The Bard’s Greatest Love Story
On April 26th 1564, a child who would grow to become the most influential and celebrated figure in English literature was born at a half-timbered house in Stratford-upon-Avon. William Shakespeare brought us that most romantic of ‘doomed love’ stories – Romeo and Juliet, as well as plenty of other boy-meets-girl tales. If you're looking for romantic hotels where you can create your own love story, you could book a stay at the exquisite Macdonald Alveston Manor Hotel or the elegant Tudor-style Falcon Hotel.
