When you’re looking for relaxed adult weekend breaks away, staying close to home in the UK can be the best way to make the most of limited time. While the high-profile destinations most definitely have their appeal, there are also countless smaller towns and villages around the country that are every bit as fulfilling and memorable. |
Discover Market Bosworth on Adult Weekend Breaks
The pretty-as-a-picture town of Market Bosworth is one of Leicestershire’s most popular destinations, with plenty of attractions to keep you more than satisfied for a few days or longer. While the well-known Bosworth Hall is probably its main attraction (playing host to some stellar musical events throughout the year), however you like to spend your leisure time you’ll find something here to make you happy.
Here’s a taster.
The Power of Flowers at Bosworth in Bloom
While being able to attend will, naturally, depend on the time of year, but if you happen to be planning your escape during late spring and autumn, you can enjoy the vibrant, colourful delight of this much-loved flower show, which has been the recipient of multiple national awards over the past three decades.
A Touch of History at the Battlefield Heritage Centre
The award-winning exhibitions at the Battlefield Heritage Centre tell the story of the conflicts and conquests surrounding Richard III, Henry Tudor and the infamous Wars of the Roses. In addition to the interactive displays there’s plenty of outdoor activities to get involved in too. It’s history, but fun!
Cruise on the Canal
A very pleasant day out – and a fantastic way to see the countryside from a different vantage – is to take a leisurely cruise along the idyllic Ashby Canal. You can hire an historic narrow boat with or without a steerer, then sit back, relax and enjoy a very tranquil and picturesque ride.
Take to the Rails
Located just a short distance out of town, this restored steam line train trundles between Shackerstone and Shenton Stations, taking in the picturesque countryside at a slow and steady pace – which is perfect for sightseeing! There’s a small but well-appointed museum in the stationmaster’s office (at Shackerstone) displaying all kinds of railway memorabilia, as well as some very interesting restored diesel engines and locomotives sitting out in the yard – some of which are still in use.
Music Events at Bosworth Hall
Set within 11 acres of beautiful manicured gardens, as well as providing some very impressive accommodation, the seventeenth-century listed mansion regularly plays host to high-profile themed musical events – like the Soul & Motown Summer Party. If you’re looking for fun-filled adult weekend breaks, this place definitely guarantees an experience to remember.
Get Ready to Go
Tempted to give Market Bosworth a try? Great decision! If you want to take the stress out of your planning and accommodation, the best idea is to use the services of a tour operator that specialises in adult weekend breaks. That way you’ll be able to leave the details to the experts and concentrate on the important business of exploring this charming town and enjoying everything it has to offer without distractions.
