Areas To Choose From

Nuneaton

Nuneaton

Nuneaton, a town in Warwickshire, England, might not be the first name that springs to mind when thinking of tourist destinations, but for those willing to delve into its offerings, it reveals a wealth of history, culture, and natural beauty. This town, often overshadowed by its more famous neighbours, holds a charm that is uniquely its own, with ties to literature, expansive green spaces, and attractions that offer a glimpse into England's industrial past.

The spirit of Nuneaton is perhaps best encapsulated by its connection to George Eliot, one of the 19th century's most renowned novelists. Born Mary Ann Evans in a farmhouse on the town's outskirts, Eliot's early life in Nuneaton and the surrounding countryside profoundly influenced her writing. Visitors can explore her legacy at the Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery, located in the picturesque Riversley Park. The museum not only delves into Eliot's life and works through its permanent exhibition but also showcases local history, fine art, and temporary exhibitions, making it a cultural hub within the town.

Riversley Park, the museum's setting, is a testament to Nuneaton's dedication to green spaces. With its formal gardens, children's play area, and tranquil river walks, it provides a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The park is a focal point for community events and leisure activities, reflecting the town's communal spirit.

Further exploring Nuneaton's natural offerings, the Hartshill Hayes Country Park offers expansive views over the Anker Valley and beyond. Its woodland walks and picnic areas make it a popular destination for families and anyone looking to immerse themselves in nature. The park's elevated position allows for breathtaking vistas, especially during the autumn and winter months when the foliage and frost add a magical touch to the landscape.

Nuneaton's industrial heritage is another facet of its identity, with the town playing a significant role in the coal mining industry until the latter part of the 20th century. The Chilvers Coton Heritage Centre pays homage to this aspect of Nuneaton's history, offering insights into the lives of the miners and the community's development. The centre, located in one of Eliot's childhood homes, serves as a poignant reminder of the town's evolution from rural hamlet to industrial centre.

For those interested in the performing arts, the Abbey Theatre is a cornerstone of Nuneaton's cultural scene. Offering a diverse programme of performances, from drama to comedy and musical theatre, the theatre is run by the community for the community, showcasing local talent and attracting acts from further afield.

Shopping and dining in Nuneaton provide a mix of traditional and modern experiences. The town centre, with its blend of high street names and independent retailers, offers something for every shopper. The Ropewalk Shopping Centre, with its contemporary design, stands in contrast to the outdoor market, a tradition that has been a part of Nuneaton's fabric for centuries. The market remains a bustling hub where visitors can find fresh local produce, crafts, and a variety of goods.

Alton

Alton

When considering a weekend break in Alton, a charming market town nestled in the heart of Hampshire, England, visitors find themselves drawn into a blend of rich history, stunning countryside, and engaging attractions. This picturesque locale, with its rolling hills and vibrant community, offers a delightful retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life, providing a variety of experiences that cater to different interests, from the history buff to the nature lover.

Alton's historical significance is palpable as you wander its streets. The town's narrative is interwoven with tales from the English Civil War, notably serving as a pivotal site during this tumultuous period. The Church of St. Lawrence, standing since the 13th century, is a testament to this history. It was here that the Battle of Alton was fought in 1643, and the church bears the scars of battle, with musket ball marks visible on its walls. A visit here is not just an exploration of a beautiful religious site but a step back into a critical moment in England's past.

Beyond its historical allure, Alton serves as a gateway to some of the UK's most breath taking countryside. The South Downs National Park, a stone's throw away, offers endless opportunities for outdoor adventures. Here, the rolling hills and serene woodlands invite visitors to immerse themselves in nature, whether through leisurely walks, challenging hikes, or cycling along picturesque routes. The Hanger's Way footpath, which begins in Alton, meanders through some of the most scenic parts of the park, offering a splendid escape into nature's tranquillity.

For those inclined towards literary and cultural pursuits, Alton does not disappoint. The town was home to Jane Austen in her final years, and her house in nearby Chawton is now a museum dedicated to her life and works. This intimate connection to one of England's most beloved authors offers a unique opportunity to delve into the world that inspired classics such as "Pride and Prejudice" and "Emma." The museum, set in a charming country house, provides a fascinating glimpse into Austen's life, her family, and the societal norms of her time.

Alton's market tradition, dating back to the Saxon era, is another facet of its appeal. The weekly market brings the town centre to life, showcasing local produce, crafts, and goods. It's a place where the community and visitors alike come together, offering a chance to engage with local culture, sample regional delicacies, and find unique souvenirs. This vibrant market atmosphere, coupled with the town's array of independent shops and eateries, makes for a delightful day out, exploring and enjoying the local flavours and craftsmanship.

As evening falls, Alton reveals a different charm. The town's pubs and restaurants offer a warm welcome, with many establishments serving locally sourced food and real ales. It's an opportunity to relax and reflect on the day's adventures, whether you've delved into history, explored the natural beauty of the South Downs, or followed in the footsteps of Jane Austen.

Banbury's history stretches back over a millennium, and its past is woven into the fabric of the present. The Banbury Cross, a symbol of the town's heritage and the subject of the famous nursery rhyme, stands as a testament to Banbury's medieval roots. Visiting the Cross provides not just a photo opportunity but also a connection to the town's historical narrative, offering a starting point from which to explore further.

The town's significance grew during the medieval period, a fact that is celebrated at the Banbury Museum. Located beside the picturesque Oxford Canal, the museum offers insights into the town's development, its role in the English Civil War, and its industrial heritage, particularly in the 19th and 20th centuries when it became renowned for its production of Banbury cakes – a spicy, fruit-filled pastry that is still a local delicacy today.

Beyond its historical attractions, Banbury serves as a gateway to the rolling hills and stunning landscapes of the Cotswolds. The countryside surrounding Banbury is dotted with traditional English villages, historic estates, and walking paths that offer breath taking views and a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. A short drive or a leisurely cycle can take you into the heart of the Cotswolds, where the beauty of the English countryside unfolds in a patchwork of green fields, ancient woodlands, and picturesque villages with honey-coloured stone cottages.

Back in town, the Banbury Market Place is a hub of activity, especially on market days when stalls offer everything from fresh local produce to crafts and clothing. The market is a place where the community comes together, and visitors can experience the local culture first hand. Around the market, independent shops and cafes line the streets, inviting exploration and the chance to discover unique gifts or enjoy a cosy coffee break.

For those interested in the arts, The Mill Arts Centre presents a diverse programme of events, including theatre, music, film, and workshops.

A weekend break in this ancient market town, reputed to be the oldest borough in the United Kingdom, offers a rich tapestry of experiences that seamlessly blend the past with the present, nature with culture.

At the core of Barnstaple's charm is its vibrant history, palpable in the architecture and landmarks scattered throughout the town. The Pannier Market, a centrepiece of local life since the Saxon times, continues to thrive, providing a bustling atmosphere where local artisans, farmers, and traders showcase their goods. The market's Victorian architecture, with its grand arches and historic ambiance, offers more than just a shopping experience; it's a journey into the town's communal spirit and past.

Here, one can find a variety of local delicacies, crafts, and artisanal products, making it an ideal spot for those looking to discover the essence of North Devon's culinary and creative talents.

Barnstaple's history is not confined to its markets. The town is home to St Anne's Chapel, a beautifully restored medieval building that now serves as a community centre and museum, offering insights into the town's spiritual and communal heritage. The nearby Barnstaple Castle, though now largely in ruins, whispers tales of the town's medieval importance and offers a panoramic view of the surrounding landscape, illustrating the strategic significance of its location.

For those drawn to the natural beauty of North Devon, Barnstaple acts as a perfect starting point. The town is situated near the confluence of the rivers Taw and Yeo, with the Tarka Trail running alongside. This 180-mile footpath and cycleway, inspired by Henry Williamson's novel "Tarka the Otter," provides an immersive experience of the area's diverse ecosystems. Following the trail, visitors can explore wooded valleys, serene riversides, and lush countryside, possibly encountering the local wildlife that inspired Williamson's work.

Barnstaple's proximity to the spectacular North Devon coastline is another of its draws. A short journey from the town centre lies a stretch of coastline renowned for its breath taking beauty, surf-friendly waves, and sandy beaches. From the rugged cliffs at Hartland Point to the golden sands of Woolacombe and Croyde, the coast offers a paradise for surfers, walkers, and nature lovers alike.

Known for its distinctive, open-minded culture and picturesque setting, Brighton manages to blend its historical charm with a lively contemporary scene, making it an ideal destination for travellers seeking variety in their short break.

The heart of Brighton's allure lies in its stunning seafront and iconic pier.
