If you’re looking for the best holiday destination in January to visit, have you considered looking a little closer to home?

From cosy hotels to historic streets and world famous theatres, discover our top five reasons to enjoy a winter staycation here in the beautiful Stratford-upon-Avon…

1 – Discover where the story began

The medieval market town of Stratford-upon-Avon, is not only picturesque with cobbled streets and timber-framed buildings, but it’s also the birthplace of 16th-century writer William Shakespeare.

On a January staycation in Stratford, why not visit Anne Hathaway’s cottage and Shakespeare’s Birthplace for a taste of history or enjoy a show at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre?

2 – There’s so much heritage on your doorstep

When England has over 1,500 castles and 650 abbeys, Stratford-upon-Avon is a perfect central base for you to explore everything this country has to offer.

Why not immerse yourself in the history of Warwick Castle, built by William the Conqueror in 1068, and only a 15-minute drive away from The Arden Hotel? Or visit the iconic Coventry Cathedral and the striking ruins following The Blitz in World War Two.

3 – Delicious English dishes

From homemade roast dinners to scrumptious Afternoon Teas, sometimes you just can’t beat the taste of a British classic.

At The Arden Hotel, our wintertime menus at No.44 Brasserie feature dishes that are packed full of taste, with hints of spice to nourish both body and soul. Why not book a table and taste for yourself?
