So before chaos ensues, why not plan some downtime with your partner and escape to a romantic retreat at one of the county’s luxury getaways?

Brockencote Hall Hotel

Given it has two AA rosettes, you couldn’t be in better hands when it comes to the food, but why stop there? Brockencote Hall Hotel has consistently been awarded 4 stars by the AA but it is the Red colour of the stars that denotes them the coveted addition of being an ‘Inspectors Choice’. A hotel awarded red stars has been selected by the AA as one of the best hotels in the British Isles, higher than Silver or Gold.

The Cardinal’s Hat

The Cardinal’s Hat is Worcester’s oldest pub and originally dates back to the fourteenth century. The 6 Georgian city rooms offer a sense of glamour from the pub’s Regency heyday. Each bedroom has a strong story to tell about their namesake and their connection to Worcester.

Spacious rooms with high ceilings boast comfy king-size beds and luxury bathrooms, and of course the characteristic cosy pub that can be found downstairs.

All rooms boast antique Georgian furniture, TV and wifi, and tea and coffee making facilities with Royal Worcester crockery.

Did You Know? Worcestershire can claim its own piece of romantic history – William Shakespeare is said to have travelled to Worcester with Anne Hathaway in 1582 to get married in St Martin’s Church. The St Martins Gate on the city wall was the start of the road to Stratford, where they lived.
