You will find the quaint and quiet town of Warwick deep in the centre of England along the banks of the River Avon. It is just under 20 kilometres south of Coventry and next to Leamington Spa. Warwick has been continuously inhabited since at least the 6th century A.D. Throughout the Middle Ages, it was a busy place with castles being built by famous Britons like William the Conqueror, and invasions by the Danes. A huge fire destroyed most of the old city in 1694, so the town centre is predominantly 17th and 18th century buildings – this does not take away from its charm and characteristic beauty though. Has this sparked your interest? You can easily spend a few days exploring the old town and areas surrounding Warwick if you start with HRS. Book a Warwick hotel today.
One of the biggest attractions in Warwick is the Warwick Castle. It is open most days of the week, and is good fun for all ages. You will be able to see what it was like to live in the castle in the centuries past. Make sure you check out the haunted tower and the scary dungeon before you head back to your Warwick hotel. If you are looking for something a little more sophisticated, then stop in at the Warwick Racecourse and take in a few horse races. You will find it on the west side of the city near the west gate. Warwick is host to countless festivals and fairs, from Folk Festivals to the literary Spoken Word Festival. St. Mary's Church is host to a series of musical concerts, and the unique harmonics of the church create an ambiance that cannot be described, you have to be there to understand.

You can easily plan your journey to your Warwick hotel. The nearby Coventry Airport is only a few minutes outside the city. You can also plan to travel to the Birmingham International Airport which is very well connected internationally. Warwick is reasonably close to London, and you can be here within about two hours by car, weather and traffic permitting. There are regular trains that run twice per hour from London Marylebone and Birmingham Snow Hill stations to Warwick. Please note though, you must alight at the Warwick Station stop, not the Warwick parkway Station. If you are travelling by train from other departure points, you may only be able to get to Leamington Spa, but the short journey over to Warwick can be done by bus or taxi. Once you are settled in to your Warwick hotel, you can get out and wander about on foot, or take advantage of the local city bus services.
