Barcelo’s collection of short break offers brings to the very best of Britain’s coast, countryside, spa towns and historic cities, all from the comfort of Barcelo Hotels in England, Scotland & Wales.
Here are just some of the offers:
Luxury Country House Hotels
Barceló Walton Hall Hotel in Warwickshire was designed by the architect responsible for St. Pancras Station. Today, as Barceló Hotels, they’re elegant havens in which to escape the modern world, with luxuries their original owners could never even have dreamt of. Broad sweeps of peaceful parkland, and period features like the Barceló Lygon Arms Hotel’s wood panelling and mullion windows, give them a timeless tranquillity, making them the place for a romantic getaway. All offer a huge range of local attractions and events to explore, as well as some of Britain’s most glorious countryside.
Britain has over 11,000 miles of coastline. The Barceló Old Ship Hotel in Brighton overlooks one of more than 70 Blue Flag beaches. Blackpool became a fashionable resort in the 18thCentury and remains Britain’s most popular UK seaside holiday destination. And in a town that claims to have more hotel beds than the whole of Portugal, there’s 180 bedroom Barceló Imperial Hotel in Blackpool as a base from which to enjoy the Golden Mile and other attractions.
Spa Town Hotels
‘Taking the waters’ was the preserve of a wealthy society. The names ‘Harrogate Majestic’ and ‘Buxton Palace’ say it all, while Barceló Park Hotel in Cheltenham and Barceló Combe Grove Manor Hotel in Bath are elegant country houses built during the towns’ Regency heydays. With their blend of contemporary comfort and period style, they are the place for weekend retreats, and where to come back to after a long day’s sightseeing.
Historic Cities Hotels
Barcelo Hotel in Oxford (barcelo-hotels.co.uk) has the city’s unparalleled cultural treasures on its doorstep. Guests will also find yourself right in the heart of the city at Barceló Carlton Hotel in Edinburgh. On the famous Royal Mile, it’s a short walk from Princes Street, Edinburgh Castle and Holyroodhouse. And, though a relative newcomer among Europe’s capitals, Cardiff is one of its top short-break destinations, thanks to outstanding shopping and dining, the magnificent Castle (one of 1,000 Listed buildings in the city) and The Millennium Stadium, which is a stone’s throw from our hotel.
