Weekend breaks for couples
Escape together to Shakespeare’s county
Few destinations in the UK can rival Shakespeare’s England for idyllic weekend breaks for couples. Whether you’re looking for a cosy B&B where you can snuggle up by a roaring log fire, a chic boutique hotel in the heart of a bustling town centre or a luxury country house hotel, this corner of leafy Warwickshire has it all.
Not surprisingly, Stratford-upon-Avon is a popular choice for couples on weekend breaks. Internationally renowned for the Royal Shakespeare Company and the five Shakespeare houses, this attractive riverside town has much to offer. But there’s much more to Stratford than simply Shakespeare as those on weekend breaks here will discover – from leisurely river trips and enlightening town walks to fascinating museums and shopping galore.
Other towns in the region that make perfect bases for couples on weekend breaks include historic Warwick and Kenilworth – both famed for their magnificent castles – and Regency Leamington Spa, which hosts an impressive selection of cafés, bars and restaurants as well as being a shoppers’ paradise.
